They are both marketing names and could apply to many strains. The term red zebra could mean the pure species or cherry reds. Not specific.

The picture has lighting that makes the fish a little more red than if you saw them in person.

Metriaclima estherae in the lake are a little more orange than that.

Cherry red zebra is line bred for males to be red instead of blue. The natural fish in the lake have blue males.

The orange blotch in the background of my avatar is the color you would see in person if looking at a Cherry Red Zebra.
