LOL Do these look pale to you?
Now admittedly I've selectively bred for dark color, and the occasional transparent green or blue is thrown, but I don't think this looks like ghost shrimp.
They are not as solid as higher grade cherries though, and still have a translucent quality to them.
As far as cherries, it really depends on what grade you get. Check this link out to an old thread. Keep in mind, since this thread was made, PFR were bred into a true strain and are stable http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...re-Red-Shrimps
Another nice thing is that "cherries" come in different colors as well. Just about any color is hardy, but yellows people tend to have a challenge with in breeding and sometimes even keeping alive. The strain you get is kind of a crapshoot with them thar yellers.
