Personally, I really like the way C grades look. And since I found super reds, I've often thought they look like C grades.

I think you should consider a strain name though since "C grade" has such a bad stigma attached to it.

I know right! IMO C grade look much better than SSS. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though.

Oh hells yeah. I've been trying to get more too. I have about 5-10 of these guys right now but I should get on top of breeding these guys. Though yours are way more red than mine were, mine have some more clear parts.

I like both sides of the spectrum SSS,B/C but nothing in between lolol

Ray, did you ever find a source for these? I know Nick was talking about some German exporter having them, but they were going to be expen$$$ive. Keep us posted and good luck!

I got the shrimp from CK Fishworld. I know someone from scape breeding this grade as well. Also I saw one C grade at AFA in San Fransisco back in November. I actually have two females and both of them are berried. More pictures later.

Mine was a baby born to SS parents and I've raised her since then. Only one that was thrown out, although I do a black one that is close but a bit more white that is a female too.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Wow nice! Never knew SS can spit out C grade. This female is surrounded by around 50 S grade shrimps. I hope the babies doesn't come out S grade

Wow. That... looks... amazing. Better than SS imo! If the red is solid with those white stripes every time, I would totally buy them. Much more affordable too. xD
When you start selling these beauties, hit me up!
