The quality of Safari Shrimps are divided into three categories. ‚Black‘ Grade, ‚Silver‘ Grade and ‚Gold‘ Grade.
-‚Black‘ Grade will have a wide variety of color and pattern. They do not always have the color intensity or brightness as the higher grades and there is usually some clear-ish areas mixed with color areas. There is no set pattern or color expectation with this grade. These are randomly picked when netting unless a group shot is shown. Orders of 5 or more Black Grade will receive 1 registered hand made Black ‚Shrimp Art‘ Serial Numbered identity Coin.
Example Black Graded Safari Shrimps
‚Silver‘ Grade will have either bright, vivid color throughout the entire body with the exception of possibly a very minor area around the cheeks, OR a strong ‚Dancing Man‘ pattern with the rest of the characteristics being similar to Black Grade. This is due to the strong ‚Dancing Man‘ pattern is very rare and hard to achieve. So in essence, they are ‚Silver‘ Grade based on either Color intensity, or pattern, not both. Orders of 3 or more ‚Silver‘ Grade will receive 1 registered hand made Silver ‚Shrimp Art‘ Serial Numbered identity Coin.
Examples silver graded Safari Shrimp ‚Dancing Man‘ Subline
‚Gold Grade‘ will have BOTH bright, vivid color throughout the entire body and a very strong ‚Dancing Man‘ pattern. The only exception would be the female is allowed to only have the slightest patch of faded color near the ear, but males can not. Males are very strict in receiving a ‚Gold‘ Grade. Each order of 1 or more will receive 1 registered hand made Gold ‚Shrimp Art‘ Serial Numbered identity Coin.

To make the grading more fine, we ad terms as Minus (-) or Plus (+) sometimes to a description.
Picture in mid shows Gold- ( minus) because the white color still can get a bit improvment.
We wish you a lot of fun and success with Safari shrimps!
