Platy ID

Hello
I bought 3 Platy's at the pet shop today ( 1 Male 2 Females) They called them Fire Wag Platy's. I did a search for them and came up empty handed. The closest ones I could find were Sunset Fire Platy's. Are these the same fish but under a different name? The males tail does not fade to a black, but remains a dark red.


Sorry for such a poor quality picture. I need to read the Photography section and learn how to take better pictures!
