Soothing Shrimp stop confusing me further :) ! That last pic of neo heteropoda looks just like a Bloody Mary or is it and which of the blue Tigers listed would be the most sought after or higher grade I wonder, as the best two looking shrimp are the first and the last in my opinion ?  I note my OEBT started off as 'deep blues', but after six months and fully grown the females turned into 'rusty reds' and not so much the males.

LOL  yeah, it gets confusing especially if not keeping up with colors. heh

 

Neo Heteropoda now is Neo Davidi.

 

Bloody Mary is actually supposed to be see through red with red tissue.  Different mutations than PFR or FR.

 

Many sellers unfortunately now are selling fire reds as BM.

 

Definitive grades are often done as adults, however you can make educated grades by knowing the strain and stock.

I'd also like to add a personal opinion.  :)  Sometimes people treat higher grades as to whether a type of shrimp is more desirable than others.  I guess I look at it as parallel rather than a hierarchy. Just different types of color.  Which do you prefer? Then keep it.  ;)

I totally agree on sellers selling FR as BM. Makes me question about some shrimps I recieve as BM but looks more like a FR. If you've had BM before you can tell if it is or not

The more serious you get into shrimp, the more you'll find scammers that sell counterfeit shrimp to make a buck.

Ie. Crs as mischlings, etc

You'll also find sellers who just label their shrimp a color because it looks like a color they've seen or heard about.

This is a good reason to buy only off reputable sellers, and even pay a little more if needed- to know what genetics you are getting.

This is great info! Does anyone know if or where we can get these printed like posters?

Does kinkos still exist? I remember printing posters from them when i was in highschool many moons ago. I also used to have this computer program that would print stuff out like that into a pile of papers, you'd just have to tape them up and you'll have yourself a big ol poster.

I'd get the artist's permission first. Art isn't free to make c:
