This time it's Crystal Reds!


Recommended Posts

Had the Crystal Reds in the "studio" today. My studio is a 1 gallon UNS cube. Using such a small tank allows me to throws a lot of light into it, and it keeps the subjects close to me at all times. I shoot with a Lumix DMC LX-10, which is a somewhat 'affordable' point-n-shoot with decent macro capabilities. 

Like my orange rilis, I've been working on this line for about a year or two, trying to refine them and get them to breed more true as grade SSS+.  Overall, I'm going for the mosura pattern in the first and second pics. Some of the other pics are of shrimp from my cull tank which I will offering for sale soon on various platforms.

I'm also working to refine some "4-banded" crystal reds. I'd like to get them to have solid uniform red-and-white bands, complete leg coloration, etc. I know that the banded CRS are considered by some a lower grade than the mosuras,  but I prefer the banded shrimp as they remind me of candy canes. Hope to have some pictures of those at some point in the future.

Once again, thanks for looking!

From what I can see, it works well!
