Looks like a low grade male carbon rili. Babaulti shrimp don't usually have colors like that.

I'd be happy if one stuck in with my shipment. At least it's easy to identify.

If you're that concerned with copper, buy a test kit. API makes one & they're usually under $10. Recommend you do test during daylight though.
