Cherry Fire Shrimp

Whats the difference between a cherry shrimp and a cherry fire shrimp? This link http://liveaquaria.com/product/prod_...fm?pCatId=1898 makes it seem like two different species. I also noticed an intresting thing today at the fish store. You know how amanos can crawl out of the net when u catch them. Well I had some cherrys that were able to walk up and out of the net. While half of them were unable to do this and stuck on their sides out of the water. Very strange is this a common thing i just discovered or?

No, it's most likely the same Cherry Shrimp we know & love. They simply took the same description found on their Amano Shrimp page and used it in the Cherry page.

Looks like the same shrimp, but their description is off! And the scientific name is off too? But I think it is the same animal!

i beleive its the same shrimp. maybe specially breed like crystals and bumbles bees. i have a few cherrys shrimps hat were born looking eactly like that. i even have a almost pure clear cherry shrimp but with small red dots on its shell. i posted a few months back worried about why my shrimps are not developing the red coloration of there parents beleiveing its diet and amount of light affecting them. a few look like that fire shrimp. and some have been developing a white to pink stripe down there backs.

"Wild" Cherries are blue/brown.

I have some wild colored ones in my 75 gallon. They are a really attractive dark brown color with a tan strip down their backs.I kind of like them better than the red cherries.

They do come like so. I've had some shipped to me from Southeast Asia. Was trying to reintroduce new blood into the lines, so to speak.

I believe they are referring to crystal reds (Caridina serrata).
Description is still wrong.
