Full Blue Rili is something real and not fake

It has come to my attention that there are people other parts of the world which have taken my picture of my full blue rili and labelled it as fake and photo edited. I'm pretty sure this is fairly accurate but you can change a raw file to a JPEG but you can't change a JPEG to a raw file with the same capabilities as you would have with a normal raw file. Heres proof of how much I actually "edited". Not much was done other than having the picture sharpened for a crisper look. I'm sorry, but I do not possess the skills to alter a picture from red to blue.

Download to the raw file of this photo : RAW FILE of FULL BLUE RILI


  1. When you zoom in on the RAW file, you can see faint amount of red in the head still, showing these came from blue rili's and you have a mutation with no red left and some darker blues coming through. There is always haters online.

  2. Thanks Jay,
    The people on other forums that took my picture and called it fake said it was a red rili and the entire picture was masked blue.

  3. I'm a bit of photoshop whiz and don't see any masking. The bits of red showing through at high zoom, etc wouldn't come through if the whole pic was masked.

    Also, what do you get by lying about a photo? I assume you've only found 1 or 2 of these in your batches, and until you can get hundreds breeding true, its nothing anyways other that to just say, hey, look at this neat shrimp that popped up in my population.

  4. No idea, guess if its something they can't achieve then no one can.

  5. Many people on various forums still believe shrimp are being injected with dye.

    1. Hi Robert,

      Does it matter if people think that? Have they had any first hand experience? last 2 pics. How come now another person now has this? For the record, I've never sold anything to this person. If all you want to do is criticize with no actual evidence your not welcomed here. I'm only sharing personal experiences. I've already put the raw file up and so has my friend on some of the forums being discussed. Why is it that they haven't rebutted back?
