Shrimp ID

I just want to make sure I am correct that this following shrimp is indeed nothing more than a Neocaridina heteropoda "wild" before it becomes fish food. Sorry for the pics its the best my camera (or atleast I can ) do

Sure wouldn't end up as fish food in my tank. I find it quite attractive!

Especially being berried, you don't know what the offspring could end up like, I wouldn't feed it. I already have a tank started with a very nice dark red PFR and some yellow males to see what happens in a few gens.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Being berried is exactly the reason she was going to be culled :P She is the only non-PFR in my PFR tank...Maybe she will get a 2.5 to herself to see what comes of her offspring.
