Please [email protected] Sick shrimp?

Hi All. A friend of a friend gave me some shrimp form her tank and I noticed that one of the shrimp has this white stuff inside of her/him. I looked online and it doesn't look like they have parasites. Can someone tell me if this shrimp is sick? Out of the 10 shrimp I got, none of them has this. Should I take this shrimp out of the tank become it contaminates my other fishes/shrimps? Thanks for your help! Also, can you tell me what type of shrimp I got?

Shrimp is a rili patterned cherry. I believe that's an egg saddle. No need to fret!

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
