What would you grade this crs?


I'm just curious what grade would this crystal shrimp be considered as. My guess would be "B" grade but not sure. The only reason I ask is that she just gave birth to a ton of babies in my 12g and I'm all excited.

Thanks

I'd say B or maybe even C grade.

I was fortunate enough to be there while this shrimp was giving birth. She was pretty stressed out and was completely pale. Made me a bit nervous. I thought I was gonna loose her. I'm glad to see her color is back to normal.

In my opinion C would have more red. I think this would be B grade. However, like food, everyone has a different opinion on what exactly fits their idea of grades.

I think low grades it a lot of red are very pretty too.

The shrimp in the top pic is a TB. The bottom is a low grade crs. $20 shrimp vs $3.99 shrimp. Both just as beautiful. Lol!

It's sometimes very hard to tell tibees from low grade CRS by just the looks, only the breeder can tell the truth. I don't think tibees should command a much higher price unless the pattern is very good and the line has been stabilized, after all, they are very easy to get from bee shrimps (CRS/CBS/Golden) x Tiger of any kind.

LOL...low grade CRS are quite difficult to find and would be worth more than that Tibee right now (which is what I think you mean and not TB which is abbreviation for Taiwan bee).

Jaime, thanks for the correction . Seems like there are more and more acronyms used these days, not only in this hobby but everywhere. lol!!! It's making my head spin.
