You may need to do some research to answer that Q.

I may be wrong but I always thought it was how many fins show the red coloration. With the triple red cockatoo the dorsal, anal and caudal fins would all have some red in them.

alright, i've been sifting through sites all over and this is what i've come up with:
the only difference between the strains is the presence of red on the anal fin. gheitman, you are right. the interesting thing i found is that neither strain is completely "set". so if your lfs is selling double reds because that's what they bought them as, you get a bonus for finding any with triple red markings. when it comes to breeding, anything goes. you could have doubles or triples from either strain.
