    even though they are brownish doesnt mean they aren't cherries. I have 2 male cherries that are brownish.

    I think they are lovely in a subtle way. Any variation in the offspring or are they breeding very true?? I have just bought some!!

    My bf is doing a night shift and I am buying shrimp online in a sleep-deprived mania, .

    I love shrimp!!! \(^-^)/

    You should look into blue velvet shrimps those are nice ones.

    Those are just regular low grade cherries. They will breed true, you'll get some redder ones somtimes.

    If you are looking for brown shrimps, there is a color mutation which has fully brown shrimps.

    They are large, about 5cm, they do have a dorsal stripe that is quite neo hetera looking.

    They are very uniform as a group, pale brown speckled, in fact, they look very lovely and natural, they are in my community tank and hang out with some amano.

    I like them because they are large and robust, natural looking, unobtrusive in a tank where coloured fish are they main focus point. In summary - they do the amano job, but will easily breed I hope!
