Picked 3 of these up for 42$ today, wondering what they're called. The guy told me blue eyed gold BN. But I think they might be low super red?

It looks like a blue eye to me. Where did you pick them up? That could answer the question.

It looks like a super red to me.. But not as red? L144 longfins should be more golden yellow in colour?

Store fish often do not get fed properly and lose colour. That is particularly what can happen to super reds. They need the fresh vegetables and greens. Good feeding and the colour comes back.

I noticed on the one female her fin has a area of dark red, almost like blood as the female super red I purchased from Charlie does too. So that lead me to think they may be super red and just lost some color. I guess I'll find out soon enough while in feeding them real good :)
