Cherry Barb Which are males which are females?

    I am trying to figure out how to tell the difference between males and females. I bought 6 cherry barbs and lost 3 (I think they were just weak since they were the ones that wouldn't eat and the water parameters are fine. They died quite early too).

    I want to buy three cherry barbs to replace them now that everything had calmed down but am trying to figure out how many males and females I have so I can buy either more males or females depending on what I already have.

    the males are the RED RED ones, the deep in color ones.

    females are more pale in their red coloration
