RCS and Yellow Shrimp


Hi guys, I was wondering whats there difference between PFR and Taiwan fire reds. Also about how much do they go for. I have a another question that deals with Yellow shrimp (Neos) are there more then one types like the cherry do where they have deeper colors. Lastly how much would these yellows go for. Thanks!

There's a fair bit of confusion about grading among cherries, though most people seem to follow this http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=159785

As for yellows, there are higher grade ones called yellow fire or yellow neon shrimp. From the pictures I've seen they seem to be a little bit more solid in color than the normal yellows and the females often have a lighter stripe down their back.

As for prices, they start below $1 per shrimp and range all the way up to whatever people will pay for them.

That looks like PFR

RCS and Taiwan bees are different genus, they can't interbreed.

Check this link to see how they (and other shrimp) look like:
