do a quick google search it looks like a cardina propinqua or orange bee shrimp. also whoever told you they were breeding amano shrimp in their pond is either a lair or confused. ammano shrimp need brackish water when they're young. so whoever told you this is probably breeding cherry shrimp which are the varieties that come in a bunch of colors such as red orange and blue and usually loose their coloration in undesired water conditions. anyways this is definitely not an amano shrimp.
