    Caridina Mariae Grading

    -- DRAFT -- This chart is currently on hold until we complete the others.
  2. Gading of Caridina logemanni, Caridina mariae and Taiwan Bee Shrimp has been a hot topic recently on various groups and there hasn't been a consistent application of grading across these shrimp. There is a lot of hearsay but nothing documented anywhere. As a result, to ensure we maintain a consistent approach to grading here and on our Facebook group, I'm putting forward draft gradings for feedback from the SKF community. Grading TableGradeDescriptionExamplesHigh> 90% total body coverage of the identifying colour the shrimp looks crisp and perfect to the naked eye may still have some small imperfections under magnification. Medium70% - 90% total body coverage of the identifying colour the shrimp is not as crisp also has some slight imperfections in the overall appearance with the naked eye. Low35% - 70% total body coverage of the identifying colour the shrimp has the appearance of being patchy and imperfect the overall appearance with the naked eye is poor. CullThe shrimp has reached a point that it is barely recognisable as belonging to the intended group also genetic and physical deformities etc that mean the shrimp should be removed from the general population. Championship: The shrimp must appear perfect and under magnification show no imperfections or blemishes. The perfect example with full body coverage of colour and pattern for the given variant. If anyone has examples that we can use in the final grading information, please attach your watermarked images here. Also, should the quality of the offspring be representative (or better) of the parents grade?
  3. Hi all, So I've been breeding TBs for about 18 months or so now. It's getting to the point that I never could have imagined, where I have nearly too many shrimp (if there can ever be such a thing?!). I'm thinking of maybe selling some (or even putting some into the live auction in September) but I don't really understand the gradings for TBs. I figured if I posted some pics of my BBs you could comment on whether they are good or not - I'd hate to misrepresent to someone what I'm selling. Ok, so on to the good bit, the pics! 1. I have some BBs that are mostly navy all over. I know their colour gets deeper as they get older, which is why it's mostly the larger shrimp I have that are this colour. 2. At the other end of the scale, I also have some that are mostly white, with just a little smattering of light blue on their heads. 3. I also have some that aren't completely blue, but the blue they do have is almost a metallic blue speckle. I'm not sure if this one is just a juvie who is going to grow into a full-navy style BB when slightly older. 4. Here's a family shot - anybody else's BBs tend to stick together in their tank? Or is it just coincidence? 5. Finally, I think this is my favourite BB. I am wondering whether this shrimp is a result of a shadow panda TB x tibee. There are some slightly brown-ish/clear patches on it's back that matched the colour of the tibee. At first I thought it could be some kind of BB mischling, but my tank has always been 100% pure TB (with 1 Tibee for 6 months). Even though the colour isn't the same from the head to the tail, I think this shrimp is beautiful. The blue colour shines metallic under the lights and it looks spectacular, the photo really doesn't do it justice. Is it possible to get a BB from a shadow panda x tibee? Am I the only person who thinks a non-uniform colouration on a BB is nicer than the solid navy? Anyway, thanks for reading if you got this far! Looking forward to hearing everyone's comments and thoughts.
  4. Different Grades Cherry - Clear legs with body covered in a little colour. Sakura - Legs and bottom half covered in a little colour, top half has more colour coverage. Fire - Full coverage of colour including the legs. Saddle and eggs on the female still visible under regular lighting. Painted Fire - Same as Fire except the saddle and eggs on the female only visible under special lighting conditions. Different Patterns Rilli - Solid portions of the shrimp are transparent. The more transparency, the higher the grade.
