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.
