Wild Neo or Amano shrimp?

Hi I found 3-4 of these in my tank. They kind of look like my Amanos but i read that Amano doesn't breed in freshwater. Are they the offsprings from my blue/yellow/red Neos turned wild?

yip, look just like mine.
EDIT - mixing of different mutations of neo's results in this colouration, they do eventually turn back though through the generations (mines are starting to produce a few dark reds now, a few generations on)

Look more like wild neos. This is sometimes what happens when you mix different mutations of neos.
