Cool What kind of red shrimp in this video?


Are those normal cherry, sakura shrimp, red fire or Supreme Fire or Painted Fire Red? Any thought? Thanks

You could use all 3 labels for them. The only real big difference that I notice on mine is when they are semi see-thru I call them sakura and when its so dark that you can't see even the saddle on the females I label it Fire red.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that painted fire reds also have bright red legs?

That's what I mean about colors of red being subjective. When you can see through a solid red I call them fire reds, and when so solid you can't see through them I call them PFR.

That video from a person told me the stock he has is supreme red. So I am not sure if those are the supreme red or just regular fire red which the color are a bit bright in red .. instead of dark red like PRF and/or true supreme red?

For the price of supremes, if there are any doubts, do what you gut tells you.
