Please, FAST, IDentidy if these are Red cherry or not?

Hello;

Purchased 6 Red cherry shrimp yesterday and noticed 3 of them don't look like red cherry. One of the looks like Red Fire Shrimp and the other two can be Bamboo shrimp. Here are the pics.

All are RCS to me as well.

The white stripe is usually present in older shrimp and is normal.

I thought I located three males. Am assuming they're males, due to small part of their bodies being covered with red dots.

Looks like fem RCS, however it is always hard to make an accurate gender guess unless looking at the shrimp directly from the side.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

Usually it's females that get the racing stripe in old age. Not always, but for the most part, at least in my experience.

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