Male or Female or to young to tell?

I found this guy today while mucking about in one of my tanks and cant decide if its a juvi female or an amazingly coloured male.

Believe it or not both pictures are of the same shrimp.

There should be some suitable females in the tank for him, girls like these

Would you say he is well on the way to being a fire red? I know his legs aren't solid red but they are getting close.

very nice looking shrimp, good job. Can the antanae in cherries be used in a similar way to crystals to determine sex?

      Fantastic photos and great that the RO water unit and pen arrived so promptly! It is always exciting when you get a batch of shrimplets - something I am looking forward too! Simon

      Springs here, so maybe the shrimp are more active for breeding? Hope you are collecting the waste RO water for watering your plants.

      Bought an RO DI unit from FSA. Free postage and it arrived in 2 days. Very happy. The TDS pen arrived today so I got busy. For reference, I’m about 2 hours North of Sydney. Tap water: TDS 155-157. PH 7-7.2 RO water: TDS 0-1 (Remineralised to 150). PH 6.6 CRS tank water: TDS 198. PH 7-7.2 I siphoned a vey small amount of tank water and am in the process of drip feeding the RO water into the tank. I’ll do this method during water changes until the tank water PH is at 6.6 I guess.  Also found new born shrimplets yesterday and two more berried females. I haven’t seen any berried in about a month so I’m happy.

      But the shrimp will be thinking otherwise. Look at all that yummy brown diatom!
