Pumpkin or Red cherry??

When the tank was cycled I used a tester RCS before I put my Pumpkins in the tank. I removed one that looked like this one the other day that I thought was a Cherry. Now I saw this one, Is it a cherry or a Male Pumpkin? I am afriad if it is a male Pumpkin I removed a male, but looks red to me.

Any Ideas so I can remove it before it tries to breed with the Pumpkins, I already have 2 Berried females...

On my screen it looks like a low quality cherry. If you're trying to improve the looks of your shrimp I wouldn't breed it to anything.

If you have cherries and pumpkins in the same tank they are going to muddle their colors anyways. But it looks like a male cherry to me.

He might have hitch hiked on some moss I moved over. The others are orange just a bad pic.
