Well, I don't think that Franks descriptions are very accurate on this one. You just have a cherry that has less color than the others. It is possible that you have some sort of hybrid, as "rainbow shrimp" is a generic name given to unknown species of shrimp, BUT odds are it is just an run of the mill cherry shrimp!
