This is the picture of a few Blackberry shrimp that I bought from AquaTouch here in Phoenix, AZ. I would say half of them stayed like this color but the rest faded to dark brown. I bought 6 of them last December.

Some of my amanos are a deep green color but a large portion of their body is still clear. I like your shrimp! It even has the stripe down the back.

I believe Crispino was right looks alot like a blueberry shrimp as ive read that they tend to be black also but looks more like a (black) cherry shrimp than an amano. Has the same yellow stripe along the back as some my cherries.

shrimp in the picture is not an amano. From the image it is definitively some other kind of caridina, probably a ninja shrimp.
