That looks like a low grade CRS, caridina cantonensis

Thank you. I had hoped that it could be a orange/red and that I could make some with more solid orange.

This one is more brown than the crystal black and red. It is a mix of them both I suppose. Is it usual that they get black stripe on the side?

The first looks almost like a red tiger, again keep in mind it is the same species, now that I think of it the first image you showed looks like a TiBee (in this case a CRS crossed with a red tiger, cause it has some white). Keep in mind tigers and crystals are the same species.

The second looks like a low grade CBS, again the same species. But it could also be a wild form paracaridina "princess." Paracaridina are very closely related to c. cantonensis and can crossbreed.

When you cross red and blacks, usually either red or black come out, very rarely will you get browns.

Thank you!

This is also the brown with some white and two black stripes on the side.
