99.9999% sure the blue will turn black as they age. you can't judge shrimp by the baby color if they just gave birth. I've had snow whites look like blue bolts at birth, regular tigers look orange, c grades look like wine reds, etc but as they age, they all looked like adults.
It's also theorized that the "black" in shrimp is a very dark layering of blue, so would make sense that a newborn with not-so-solid black would appear a bit blue at birth.
