I seem to have my first saddled cherry shrimp since introducing them to the tank a little over a week ago. They all seem to be molting fine (found at least 4 empty shells since they were put in). I was wondering if these cherry shrimp were males. They seem to be more slender, but I'm not sure. Sorry for the bad camera quality.

Females tend to have more color/deeper red than males, so because the pictures are blurry my best guess is that they are females.

However, if you can see them clearly look for a saddle. Obviously the berried ones are female, but males won't have a saddle and females that aren't holding eggs will.

All three pictures look to be male imo, unless they're really young females
