Some Cherry shrimp have RED eggs? I've never seen that. Cherrys will have either yellow or green eggs, maybe your shrimp is a Crystal Red instead? Crystal red shrimp have reddish/brown eggs and lower graded ones can look like cherries somewhat.

Can't say I know any shrimp with orangish/red eggs. Maybe your shrimps are Red Sakura and their deep red color is shading the yellowish eggs to an orange color? If you are concerned you should ask this question at ShrimpNow !!! since this is THE web for shrimp people :D Hope it helps :)
