Shrimp ID please

Hi everyone!

Sorry if pics are posted multiple times or too large. Still learning.

I recently bought a 10 gal tank and all of its inhabitants: about 50 shrimps: different grades of CRS, CBS, Golden Bees, and a couple of baby BKKs (I was told). However, I see now that the BKK are green and black and one appears to have orangish eyes. I'm pretty new still to the hobby so I'm so happy for TPT.

Could someone tell me if this coloring is just a variation of BKK? Do they cost the same? Is it ok to keep them with the CRS, etc?

Thank you in advance.

Last question: Any way of telling if my BKK below is male or female? About 3/4" right now. It started constantly fanning its thing-a-ma-jiggy-bobs (sorry) as if carrying eggs about a week ago but there are no eggs. I'm wishful.

The greenish tint in the black usually means he just molted or is not found of the water conditions. They other looks like a shadow panda. They both look like males
