Help! What kind of shrimp is this?

When i bought these shrimps i was told they were called "Jet Black shrimp." I've search all over the webs for information and nothing came up.

Yeah they look like sakura cherry reds. Theres no such shrimp in the hobby called "Jet Black Shrimp". Just a fancy name marketers will pull out of their rear for the unsuspecting customer to fall for.

Could have been chocolate. They come from darker and darker cherries.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
