Blue dreams and green jades on tan substrate?


Recommended Posts

I know that red cherries will display deeper red coloring on dark substrate.  Is the same true for blue dreams and green jades?  Or will they display deep coloring on tan substrate as well? I've heard some conflicting reports, and want to clarify before I set up new tanks.  Thanks guys 🤙

It can vary, but as Edwin mentioned darker is the safer route. As an anecdote I've experienced:

 

Some OEBT from breeder A, coming from dark substrate. When put into a tank with light substrate lightened up considerably. 

Some OEBT from breeder B, coming from dark substrate. When put into a tank with light substrate they barely lightened up at all. 

 

So it can vary. But if you have a heavily planted tank and there are lots of hiding places that are darker, that would probably help with a tan substrate.

 

Just my two cents! Good luck with the new shrimp tank 🙂
