If you want to grade a colony it has alot to do with males also.yukiyamallama said:
Any colony will have a mix of grades in it until you cull. Through culling you might have a purely Fire Red colony that may or may not produce true.SanDiegoRedneck said:If you want to grade a colony it has alot to do with males also.
So what do your males look like? I have females that look like that with my cherry but my males are more see threw because traditional cherry
Correct me if I'm wrong someone with more knowledge.
I didnt think the single large female were the main grading point of colony
Preference (not everyone likes same thing). But yes value changes usually but so can ease of care. So there is value in a cheaper shrimp that is easy to take care of that has lower grade.marmaaa said:WHat does grade mean and what is the role of having different shrimp grades, like does it mean one Is worth more?
Low grade Cherry Shrimp have been around for longer and are considered more hardy. Whereas high grade shrimp (for example, Painted Fire Red) are less established and are considered less hardy.marmaaa said:Oh wow the deep red color looks super cool. Does it mean that any higher grade shrimp need more care? Or it just depends on the type and there is no correlation between how high the grade is and the ease?
I have blue dream also. They are closely related to reds. Both neocaridina and I find both on the easy end of care.marmaaa said:
Wild type shrimp are the hardiest. For color varieties red has been around the longest. Don't quote me on this but I think blue was next. I think green is relatively new.marmaaa said:That makes sense, I am looking to getting some shrimp once my tank is cycled are blue shrimp and different?
Oh okay, thank you for that, I have not really seen green yet but will look into them although I will most likely get red only for the future.erbear said:Wild type shrimp are the heartiest.

It's my understanding that Blue are harder to keep than Red but if you know what you're doing it's not a huge difference.
There are some really cool varieties out there. If you get the chance Google or YouTube search Neocaridina color varieties!marmaaa said:Oh okay, thank you for that, I have not really seen green yet but will look into them although I will most likely get red only for the future.
