Which one should i go for to breed? I REALLY want to do blue rili, but I'm having trouble finding a good price that i can afford for a decent amount.

Keep looking! anyway you can select red rilli for blue, even some yellw can show bluish tones. Just a matter of time, perseverance and a bit of luck.
I wanted to have a blue rili stable colony, but I luckily I could find'em at a local shop. As they were quite expensive I've just bought a berried female, Now I have 'rilli'-babys, some of them blue. I hope they reach adulthood and became more intense coloured.
I can't tell you which one you should get (that's shrimpkeepers main problem, they're al soooooo beautyfull :D that in the end there's not enough tanks) but If you really want blue rilis, go for it!

I passed on blue rili culls and got red rili and yellow shrimp.. Haha Hopefully my reds give me a little blue tinting though:D

Het mjbn - did you find the riles locally or have to order them? Of my 5 one is fully berried and one partial as they must have gotten busy over the holiday when I was not looking with the one single male... Lucky guy :-).

Well I ordered it from someone local, if that makes sense. Same state, like 2 hours apart though. I could've gotten some more "local" but the prices were higher. Haha nice though! How long have you had them?

I've had mine since Thanksgiving week. Did you pick them up or were they shipped in the mail... I worry about shipping this time of year.

I actually haven't received them yet. The seller just suffered a loss in the family so all sales are at a standstill rightnow:/ My tanks are empty, waiting for the shrimp. haha I can't wait!

It seems like there is a supply of yellows in the Bay area although I have not bought any I am thinking about it.

Wouldn't they just go back to their wild coloration?
