Default My home-grown bloody mary shrimp

I was lucky to get a Bloody Mary shrimp from chocolate shrimps parents.

Look here to more details: http://www.shrimptank.ca/home-bloody...caridinas-rimp

I'm posting here one picture where you can see the difference between that new red shrimps and their ordinary siblings.

Very nice, Igor.

I got all kinds of different looking shrimps from my bloody mary, out of 10-15 shrimps from the only clutch I got, I only got one red, and like 4-5 chocolate, 2 blue, and the rest are green looking close to wild form.

Bloody Mary definitely look different from other red neos, your description is right on.

Thank you Randy.

When have you got your bloody mary shrimp?
Have you bough it long time ago or breed by yourself? These shrimps are new, but different people are selling them now. So, the coloration should be quite stable.

Hi Igor, I got mine from shrimpwiki. They were imported from Taiwan in September last year.

Here is the one good male I have,


Here is one female, picture taken from my friend's tank,


They don't breed true, but if you're lucky you get more red offsprings. In my friend's tank he got a lot more red than mine did. I only got a trio so maybe I am just unlucky. When you look at them in person, it seems that their red is coming out from inside the shell, very different from other red shrimps.

Wow, that's second shrimp is amazing!
It a pity that they do not breed true. I think it's matter of time. Breeders will make this line stable.
I remember that orange neocaridina shrimps that I have got at the beginning were giving lots of strange offspring and were weak. They are very different now.

Do you selectively breed those 'bloody mary' that you have?

No, I gave the trio I had to my friend because I ran out of tanks and I wanted to keep my neo tanks for other varieties (dream blue and black rilis), I only kept the offspring from them because they are in all different colours and no one really wanted them ;-)

My friend is breeding them though and pretty successful. About 50% of the offspring comes out red.

Hmmmm, interesting. I didn't have much luck with my Bloody Marys to start but I also didn't give them any attention, but I still got a few clutches to hatch. All of my offspring are red to varying degrees and they seem to take a while to develop to their potential. I'll try and snap some pics.

The 50% I indicated was incorrect. I just confirmed with him a few days ago and he told me over 80% of the offspring are red. I guess I was just unlucky to get very little red babies from the 3 I had. Not all BM will be as nice as the 2nd picture I posted, some will be less perfect but you can still differentiate them from other from red cherry of different grades.

I am clearing some of my shrimp tanks out to make time for my first marine tank but I think I will keep these around.
