Have you ever seen a cherry shrimp that is almost purple

Recommended Posts

My first generation of blues made about half red babies, some browns and a few that grew up to be purplish.  Looking really close it's blue and red spots.  I don't think that coloration is stable or easy to breed though

Wow that is interesting. I have noticed some of my Cherry Shrimps have a orange or lighter red stripe down the top of their backs.

That's called a "racing stripe."  It's somewhat common on red shrimp and very common on yellow ones, but I've never seen it on a blue one.
