 ...  other  than  the  price?
 
 i  was  at  a  lfs  today  and  he  showed  me  certain  blood-red  cherry  shrimps  that  he  said  were  "sakura"  shrimp.  they  were  also  priced  double  of  regular  RCS.
 
 My  question  ...  what  is  the  difference  between  the  two?  ...  are  they  two  different  species  or  just  grades  of  RCS?
 
 on  researching  online,  i'm  getting  mixed  answers.  like,  the  word  "sakura"  is  japanese  for  "cherry"  -  so  no  real  difference.
 
 Is  it  that  the  redder  cherries  are  called  simply  called  Sakura?
 
 My  main  question  being  -  if  i  buy  these  Sakuras,  are  their  offspring  certain  to  be  blood-red.
 Because  in  my  red  cherries,  i've  seen  that  blood-red  shrimps  can  have  pale  offspring.
 
 Also,  is  the  male  of  a  Sakura  also  blood-red?  The  males  of  RCS  are  almost  never  blood-red.
 
 The  sakura  shrimps  in  the  shop  were  still  juveniles  so  I  could  not  identify  a  male.  But  they  seemed  all  female  to  me.  Further,  I  have  not  been  able  to  find  a  properly  classified  pic  of  a  Sakura  male  online.
 
 So  another  final  question  is  ...  say  if  i  buy  a  couple  of  these  sakuras  and  i  put  in  some  of  my  regular  rcs  males  with  them.  will  their  sakura  lineage  of  intense  red  colour  continue.  
 or  should  i  just  separate  the  reddest  of  my  rcs  females  with  some  males  and  take  from  there.
 
 thanks  for  the  advice!
 
 cheers!
 
 a  couple  of  shots  of  my  existing  RCS  ...

 i  can  see  that  ...  however  even  in  the  pic  uv  posted  the  remaining  shrimps  in  the  background  seem  like  regular  RCS.
 If  Sakura  is  a  different  species  then  shouldn't  all  the  shrimps  be  just  as  red.  Else,  a  Sakura  is  just  a  more  reddish  RCS  ...  like  a  shrimp  nigga

 RCS  have  been  selective  bred  and  can  be  classified  into  3  types,
 1)regular  RCS
 2)sakura
 3)fire  reds
 sakuras  and  fire  reds  are  selective  bred  forms  of  the  regular  RCS  to  produce  even  redder  shrimps.  In  regular  RCS  the  males  are  transperent  to  little  red  whereas  in  sakuras  and  fire  reds  even  the  males  are  dark  red  in  colour.
 Sakura  are  dark/blood  red  in  colour  whereas  fire  red  shrimps  are  bright  red  in  colour.

 thank  you  for  your  help  josy,  psimhan.  and  mudassir.
 
 let  me  try  to  boil  everything  down  to  one  singular  question  ...
 
 When  two  Sakuras  mate,  are  all  of  their  fry  also  Sakuras?
 
 Because  there  are  already  quite  a  few  Sakura  quality  shrimps  in  my  tank  as  well.
 So  I'll  only  be  ready  to  pay  double  the  amount  to  buy  new  ones  only  if  i'm  certain  that  their  offspring  have  the  same  color  traits.  Else  what's  the  point  of  buying  them.  These  things  breed  like  crazy  anyway.
 
 Cos  I  know  if  i  buy  a  bunch  of  CRS  their  resulting  kiddos  will  also  continue  to  be  CRS.

 you  will  be  getting  some  cull  grades  as  well,  not  all  the  progeny  will  be  sakuras,  some  might  be  close  to  fire  reds,  some  might  be  sakuras  and  some  might  look  like  regular  RCS

 seriously?  Cos  the  shop  where  i  came  across  them  is  selling  a  single  sakura  shrimp  for  the  price  of  2  regular  RCS  (maybe  40-50  bucks  more).  And  the  Sakura  and  Crystal  Red  Shrimp  were  of  the  same  price.

 Thanks  for  the  info  Mudassir!  Helped  me  to  decide  not  to  go  for  the  Sakuras.  I'll  just  select  the  most  red  RCS  from  my  existing  tank  and  introduce  them  in  the  new  tank.  And  of  the  money  I  was  planning  to  take  out  for  the  Sakuras,  I'll  add  it  into  the  CRS  fund.

 That  would  be  in  the  Far  East.  I  would  say  the  supply  of  higher  grade  reds  is  a  lot  less  in  India.
