Has a blue hue to "clear" parts along with the black patches - Very pretty

LOVE these shrimp! I had 1 black rili that I found at my LFS (local fish store) and thought she needed more like her around. I've never ordered shrimp online before but because my LFS hasn't received more of black rilis, I needed to try APF. I am so glad I did. They had a fair priced 1 day shipping compared to other online companies plus was cheaper for the price/shrimp than my LFS. I was worried how my shrimp would arrive (I ordered 4 colors plus a plant). I did have 2 DOA of another color (my basic red ones...) but these black rili shrimp were all alive and are doing great in the tank after their acclimation period! Definitely will be ordering from APF for all my new shrimp when I want more!
