Default Red Frontosa

I went to the local ps today and they were selling "red Frontosa" , They were only about a inch and a half long and wash out. I would never but Fronts from the local PS but I am curious what variant they were. I tried counting the stripes, I thought there was seven but between their size and my eyesight I wouldnt swear to it. Anybody know what would be referred to as a red Frontosa?

I wouldnt call them hybride.

The Red Frontosa is a selective breeding of "washed out" sp. North varint.
It's burundi with brownish bars.
