Arrow Grading Information

Hi friends.

I'd like to explain a few things about our grading system in Benibachi Farm since it's different to the regular one. Our shrimps are graded base on the color intensity not the percent coverage of the white. The higher grade shrimps will have solid white body, painted like red/black and colored legs.

To be more specific:

Mix Band CRS/CBS:

They are the culls from other higher grade tanks. So the quality are not even.
Some of them may look just like the regular shrimps but they do carry Benibachi gene so they have potential of breeding higher grade shrimps. But sometimes I still can spot 1 or 2 Grade A Mosura in the batch.
Mix Band Shrimp is a most affordable way to start your breeding project. Benibachi Farm started out from this kind of shrimps.

We can guarantee the quality of any shrimp from Grade A or higher since they have been carefully select. They come with different kind of pattern such as Hinomaru, Double Hinomaru, Mosura, Crown, etc..

Grade A CRS/CBS:
A minimum of 90%solid body color, but the white may look yellowish, some may even have colored leg.

Grade S-SS-SSS and higher:
The higher grade shrimps will have a more intense white, painted-like red/black, solid leg color.

Please take a look at this video.
This was taken from Suoinho a Benibachi Gallery in Vietnam.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact me.
