[i am a little confused about the term hinomaru when used to grade shrimp. What does double hinomaru and no entry mean? Also i know this is common for crystal red shrimp but what about taiwan bees? Are they more rare and therefore worth more money? I dont see them for sale so it is hard to know what to ask for mine.post-471-0-02562600-1422488314_thumb.jpgpost-471-0-71581600-1422488619_thumb.jpg

Hinomaru means "circle of the sun" I believe. It's also the representation of the Japanese flag, the red dot. RedBees (or any bees in general) demonstrating this characteristic are labeled as Hinomaru or hino for short.

The hino no-entry is the dot with the white in between, similar to the no entry signs we have on the roads, hence the name. [emoji627]

In terms of costing more, it all depends on the preference of the buyer. I'd pay more, but that's because I adore the Hinomaru pattern. Similarly, I wouldn't pay more for the hino no-entry as I don't like it as much.

Overall, It's a pretty recognizable CRS/CBS pattern among hobbyist.

for TB, hino is not the original pattern.

 

It was stripe/panda pattern.

 

Many people believe hino type TB is the offspring of TB X CRS (hino or above)

Great guide, James!  I don't see a diff between 3 and 4 in that chart though.

 

4 has little white bar at tail.

I did get this pattern by crossing tb x mischling. I love them, the pattern is like crs but the color and density of the white are definitely Taiwan bee. I also have some wine red hino and mosura that are going to be really nice when mature.

Me too. I stalled out trying to see it.

How do you guys enjoy your shrimp without a magnifying glass?!

 

I can't, LOL
