They are more light blue but the color is stable . The intensity is depending on the mood.
"Saddle" and eggs are brown. It´s a prolific species but selective breeding is still needed to get better colors.
These shrimps are more colorfull and can get older in colder water around 22 °C / 72 °F.
My experience on this species:
Blue pearl shrimps can live in a wide range of water parameters.
They are showing better colors on black gravel.
