    I would say your right as well. Female shrimp will be bigger and have brighter color

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those can't be bloody Mary grade males are supposed to be as thickly colored as female at bloody Mary grade. Look like a low fire red to me.

    Yeah, fire red males range down to Sakura coloring, and it that male you have looks like Sakura. I hate when people advertise things as something different. Especially since bloody Mary and Sakura-fire red shrimp are 2 different lines. Bloody Mary are a red morph from the chocolate line, and it's actually the flesh on the shrimp that is red, whereas regular red cherry have a red exoskeleton/shell.
