    i have 6 of those shrimp they look more like the Sunkist Orange shrimp. They are neat little guys. They normally stay a lighter orange however if you feed them different things they may get a little darker.

    I'm not sure but if i had to put money on it I'd say its a cherry shrimp i think the lighting is making it look like a Sunkist orange shrimp but they are far less available and more pricey than a cherry shrimp.
