Trit0n's Sapphire Blue Diamond Neo Variant

Hey everyone!

These are still a work in progress, but they are derived from the variable Blue Diamond strain imported by Speedie last year. The stock strain gave off browns/blacks/blue mixtures and was not super stable in one color.

I have been working to express and stabilize the deep sapphire blue coloration that was hidden beneath the dark black/brown/blue shell. The picture is a great example of what I'm almost done removing from the strain. The tail end of the shrimp still maintains the black outer color. ALSO, if you reference my signature image, thats how stock strain used to look. PS - this picture is of a male sapphire, the females are deeper sapphire :D

I have named them Sapphire Blue Diamonds (SBDs)

Hope you like them! Feel free to ask me questions, except when I will be selling them lol they are not ready yet.

Those are BOMB! I would snag me some of those if I saw them at the LFS. Move over crystal blacks\reds. Looks real good man,especially over the Round pellia.
