wicca27 the cherrys i have look like that any time i see one of my rili's that is full red it toss it in with the cherrys lol no new rili yet but never know what will happen. those are just low grade cherrys that is what they looked like back in the 90's when they first went on the market and since then people have been working on getting more solid and bright color red in them. i myself kinda like the old ones that is y i keep them

inthepacific here are the pictures. so one is of the juvies on a hikari wafer piece then the other is two from another batch i bought off someone that were fire red cherries but im not sure what happened to the rili-ish looking one its looked that way since i got it. anyways im wondering what the offspring would look like if painted reds and these orange ones mated. (i was thinking of buying some more painted reds to get more red offspring) they look a lot less orange in this picture but in person they're actually pretty orange

Newman can you post some pics?
some red cherries can look slightly orange when young until they mature and berry, then they become crimson red.
feed them a spirulina diet and see if they turn more red.

but if your shrimp are yellow-orange hue then yes those are not red cherries.
if they're red-orange then they might be red cherry.

mislabeled shrimp

so i bought some shrimp off craigslist last week really cheap. they said they were juvenile red cherry shrimp and most of them have molted and all have turned out to be orange which is kind of disappointing. i was wondering if they would produce any red offspring if mixed with some painted red cherries.
