    If I guess correctly, I did see this "RED" Yamato in PetMart today also.

    sounds like the expensive red shrimps first spotted in petmart...?
    P-L-E-C-O-R-Y=M-A-N-I-A!!! YEAH!
    FLORENCE, capital of the region of Tuscany, has a population of around half a million inhabitants, spreads on the banks of the Arno, between the Adriatic and the Tyrrhenian seas, almost in the middle of the Italian peninsula. It is a city which bustles with industry and craft, commerce and culture, art and science.

    saw it in petmart too. highly suspect it's dyed. just compare them with the real small red shrimps. The yamatos' red seems to be distributed rather too uniformly across the body and appears "unnatural". The red on the small shrimp mirrors the shrimp's body contours and looks more like an integral part of the animal's make-up.
    It's probably some joker who's been feeding the shrimps a food tinted with red dye. Proof will be if the red fades after a while (assmuming the shrimp doesn't kiok before that)

    is this the same cherry red shrimp as Pet Mart?
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.
