Is this another hoelrsehair worm

Sorry to pop back up so quickly with another similar question but I am not sure if this is a second infected shrimp or not as I am new to the hobby, kinda thinking it is you can't see it in the pic but the white mass looks like it's pulsing.

What you are looking at is a ghost shrimp and that is the food he is digesting.
