Taiwan Bee Grading

Does it though? I've seen some pics without the band but some white on the tail. What would be the optimal colouration?

Is the red bolt a taiwan bee? I thought they could be produced from snow white or golden crossed with CRS. Hence they wouldn't be a hybrid cross like a taiwan which originates from tiger and crs type crosses? I could be wrong.

some say x CRS some x CBS , most likely a pure line 

but it is considered a rare mutation and it is a taiwan bee

Because of this rare mutation these (red and blue ) bolt have allot of genetic flaws

Its mentioned in a article in breeders n keepers magazine with the title ; beautifull shrimp , bad genetics

OK guys, I need some photos now to start filling in the chart.

Shrimp should be posed in the same way the drawn image is. No watermark as I may need to crop image to fit. I'll be applying watermark after editing so let me know what name to use for acknowledgemen

This is out of my depth guys. Have I got the shrimp in the right species box and is the grading correct?

Also, still looking for photo's to go in the blanks. Failing that, if you have cull grades of any of these drop me PM as I can always buy some to take macros myself.

I send you some notes by PM, but I just want to say here: you're doing one hell of a job sir! And also to everyone who is contributing! I'm really excited about these charts! :5565bf0371061_D:

You are doing a great job.

 

Only one that does not seem right is the low panda it looks like a PBL to me.

      I have just done the planned weekly maintenance and 10% water change and everything 'seems' to be going very well, I saw 12 blue and 9 panda shrimps so am very happy about that as there are always some hiding (and they are small) so there must be more than that at this point. Early days yet (especially with the off parameters) with the blues only been in the tank for a week and the pandas for 2 weeks. Not seen any dead ones yet and the shrimp seem happy enough and beautiful colour and pattern, all small so must be young! Parameters were TDS 159, GH 7-8, KH 1-2, PH 7 yesterday so still a bit off the usual ideal! Hopefully these figures come down slowly in time, I used pure RO water for the water change so Tds should drop 10. I will get a different PH test kit with a narrower range/increments as the one I have measures in .5 increments over a wide range which is probably a bit much. I bought these shrimp because the sellers parameters (PH 6.8) were the closest to mine so hopefully it will work out long term. I changed my zerowater filter as well, as the old one was measuring TDS 6 so passed its best. I will definitely overnight drip acclimate shrimp in the future, not that I plan any more in the forseeable future. I will add/edit photo when available, hopefully later today.

      All done now, I drip acclimated 11 blue bolts and 6 blue steel overnight and they are now in the tank so now is just wait and see if this works. 28 shrimps have now been put in and I have yet to SEE a dead one so fingers crossed! A couple of pictures of some below; I don't plan on buying any more shrimp so plan this to be a blue shrimp tank, though if it doesn't work out I have seen some female bettas I would like, but hopefully the shrimps will work out. The water parameters are still the same as before, so a bit off! I need to sort out what foods and shrimp stuff I have in the drawers and cupboard tomorrow as it's been a while, hopefully I find a shrimp lolly so I can give them one/part of those tomorrow, and it may bring as many of the shrimps out as possible.  Fingers crossed everyone...........
