  1. Today
  2. Several months back, I bought a bag of shrimp at an auction, and they were labeled as carbon (not carbon rili). They were small, but showed a more solid pattern. Fast forward a few months, and I have a 30 breeder full of these. I've been selling them as carbons, but I'm wondering if that's really what I should be calling them. Most of them are just about black, but from a dark, dark blue. My understanding is that black rose are black, but from a dark, dark red. Some show a more typical grey-blue-speckled color, similar to a carbon rili (but without the rili pattern). And some a very dark blue. But, the vast majority are nearly black. They are damn cool, and I think I have about 200, but I want to sell them with the proper name. They are too dark for blue dream. They seem too dark for blue diamond. But black rose doesn't seem right either. Deep blue? Thoughts? This is what they mostly look like when adults. The color starts more clear/blue/speckled, but fills in to nearly black as they age. But here's a good example of how the blue is sometimes visible on certain ones (left) and how some have more of the carbon coloring (right).

  5. Yesterday
  6. I didn't notice at first as they were too small to keep track of but I actually have at least 4 of these shrimp! One of them the flipper part of the tail (I really should know what the technical term is lol) is clear with a white dot on each side so isn't going to look like a bkk fully.

    I can send prayers & shrimp as well when you get to a place in your life where you want to keep them again.

    I work graveyard shift now, so have to get a nap in before work. I'll list more tomorrow. Please be patient if I don't get back to you immediately. Working nights, sleeping in the day and still trying to be there for family is exhausting. I have a gym meet for my daughter's gymnastics on Sat, so I won't be around that day most likely. By the time I get back, I'll be lucky to get much sleep at all before work. This is taking a bit longer than expected to list everything in my very little free time each day. So, your patience while updating my list for free things (as it *may* stretch into next week) is appreciated.

    Thanks, guys. It's been a struggle financially lately, but despite circumstances, I still wanted to give back to the shrimping community. I accept prayers and good Karma wishes as payment. ;-)

    Nice choice! These are still fairly new from Gladiator (less than a year) and haven't made their way up to Canada yet. I would have been all over these if they were available but got the ULINE ones instead.
