I recently obtained some more cherry shrimp to add to my colony. There is one shrimp in the bunch that is different looking, but the girl didn't know whether it was a different type of not.

Arthropod Decapoda Seafood Grass Terrestrial plant
Flower Plant Terrestrial plant Natural landscape Grass


The belly and stripes along his back are clear (not white).

Can anyone tell if this a different species, or just an unusual mutant cherry? If he is a different species, is he ok mixed with the cherries or will I end up with an unfortunate cross breed?

Thanks for the help anyone can provide.

AV is correct this is the mutation that leads to rili type Shrimp. If you remove and breed this Shrimp you may have the chance to create a line. If you are more interested in keeping a nice red Shrimp line then remove this one to stop it from popping up again.
