Home-Grown Bloody Mary Neocaridina Shrimp

I have one very interesting shrimps in my chocolate shrimps tank. It’s a make and it doesn’t look like my other chocolate shrimps. It’s bright red shrimp :).
You might read about new red variation of neocaridina davidi (former heteropoda) shrimps before. These shrimps are super cool and they are called Bloody Mary. They color is different from cherry, fire reds and painted fire red shrimps. They are move bright or scarlet in color.
This one unique shrimps I have is Bloody Mary. This totally makes sense, because Bloody Mary shrimps were selectively bred from neocaridina chocolate shrimps. This is what I have. A rare mutation took place and I ended up with this amazing create.

Look at the close-up high-definition video with this red shrimp.

I’m posting one picture of this Bloody Mary shrimps below.
