Hi Alvin,

Just want to ask you how you keep you bb colour so blue?

What is the water parameters?

Mine the colour is like transparent. Not sure how to improve the colour.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Colour of blue blot

Hi Ken, thanks for your compliments...

The blue intensity depends greatly on the genes of the parents... My blue bolt are mainly from initial batches which have very deep intense blue even as shrimplets.. But majority the females tends to get much more blue during pregnancy and as they age..

My water parameters are 6dGH and TDS210.. Been awhile since I measured PH so I can't give you that reading..

As for color improvement, it's quite hard.. Feeding more protein and calcium stuff might help but overall still based in their genes..

Hope this helps.. :)

You can slowly breed and see how are the offspring of your current batch and selective breed from there too.. :)
