IMO, not an Amano, but there are lots of similar shrimp that get sold as them. Did it come from PetCo by chance?

It's hard to tell for sure from the pic, but I would be more concerned with what it's carrying under its tail. Those don't look like eggs to me.

Odd 'Amano' shrimp?

Several of us have amanos that are not amanos... aka "false amanos"

Bandit1200 has a good eye. I think you want to do a search for "shrimp green fungus" .
