Bloody adventures

This is going to be about my bloody mary shrimps I've been breeding and keeping for almost a year now. Lately I've been having success in breeding them true to the most part (i would say 70% lol). As I adore the deep "blood" color I do sometimes come across some rilis in my bloody mary bloodline. Interesting since I've always thought they come from chocolates that can throw out bloody marys or blue diamonds.

Heres one of the offsprings of my oringinal colony. A very dark red rili patterned male shrimp. I dont know if you can see it in this pics but the bottom pic was when it was a only a young juvie.

 

 

Now the next few pics are of my females. These I like the most :)

Yepper. The diamonds will throw rilis as well, so not surprising your BM do too. :)

Im just glad the offsprings are red and not some other colors lol. For the most part my goal is to get them to come out that dark ruby red color. The only problem is that male i have pictured is 1 of 2 males. I like the darker coloration but not so much of the rili pattern. The other male is more uniform in color but not as dark but lighter.

Beautiful BM! Especially your project stock.

Thanks. Its going to be a long project trying to get these shrimps to breed true. What im surprise is there isnt really a grading scale on BM like how there is for PFR/FR/sakura

No these are BMs that i breed myself and i understand where your coming from seeing that they look like PFRs. As always I get the usual BMs that you see but as they grow older they tend to change colors to that dark blood look. Not all my BM do this as some will stay that transparent red color. When i first started out i started out with dark BMs from Bluecrown. Which were pretty nice. From there Ive been line breeding them little more than a year.

I agree with Soothing. These shrimp look PFR to me too.

 

BM are supposed to be see through, no?

 

What I'm seeing in your post on the shrimp you kept are pfr.

 

I believe they are also supposed to have red tissue, although there's been some debate on that.

Well, pfr or BM, it sure looks like you did a nice job with your breeding! :)

Yeah. I think with breeding BM theres still a very little understanding of whats a BM vs PFR even though they have been around a few years now. Even when breeding the darker ones all they throw out are all BMs. All shrimplets grow up with that jelly red colored.

When i had FRs I compared the reds to the BM and theres little gold specks to their shell vs BM. Oh. Below is a pic of my FR shrimp and btw thanks :D

Cool on the Rili. Gonna start another tank for those?

Dont know yet. Still debating on what to do with it. Got a few other rilis but not blue like this one.

Update:

Looks like i have more of these blue body rilis after leaving that same male in with the BM females and now i have more. Have about 4 shrimplets that have a blue tint to them just like their father when i first breed him. Looks like this project is going from breed darker colored BM to breeding these blue body BM rilis. Sorry for some blurry pics. Had one hand holding the net and one hand trying to press the button on the phone camera lol.

So does this Bloody Mary Blue Rili still have red tissue (with clear sections), but just a blue shell? Or is it still clear shell with now blue tissue and some red tissue?

Tbh. It looks like red/clear shell with blue tissue. I dont see any other rili pattern shrimplets other than the blue body ones. At times the father of these shrimplets look like a very dark purple where the red is. No editing has been made on this pic. He looks exactly like that.
