Unlike other breeders, these shrimp are actually black! Beautiful and breeding like mad in my tank. Thank you!
These are a decent size, small enough to tell they are still young, will be breeding size soon. Arrived active and healthy. Looks like someone has been working on developing this line as they have less mottled pigmentation than a lot of pictures online, some with good solid black on head and tail, middle 1/3 nearly free of black, very promising genetics to work with if a clear demarcation and solid pigment areas are your goals.
I had always imagined Carbon Rili were like Red Rili - clear with black ends. Instead they are a translucent blue in the middle with black ends. They look very pretty and are active. 3 weeks later I can still count all of them. They're actually more colorful than I had expected, which is saying something.
