Yup that is a really nice looking amano. Has a yellow stripe down the back? Two of my fully grown ones look the same with dark blue. I think they are the females since much larger than the rest. How about a coouple more of pics.

I know Amanos turn blue but not THAT blue...
The one in the image looks incredibly dark, the amanos that turn blue are usually still clearish. The one seen in the image looks so dark, I don't think you can even see through it!

Crazy shrimp, it looks great :)

the (bamboo) is from petco 3 stems and its been in my tank for months completly submereged with no problems exept for the ocassionall float by the bigger stem new roots growing all the time even in places where there should be any also they are much thicker than what the local dollar store sells here i dont think its lucky bamboo at all but i could be very wrong maybe i have so much areation in my tank that i wont rot? anyone else have a clue? I've heard that what ever petco sells is actually aquatic heck thats how i got it submereged and had seen in that tanks for months too

Without a good picture and close up I can think of 6 possible shrimp it could be none rare.

More than likely it is a common amano just dark in color I have seen them in all different shades and darkness of tone.

I've seen Amanos come into my work at a LFS that were a pretty dark brownish or green. Never blue like that, but it probably has to do with your dark substrate

Some of my amanos are a deep green color but a large portion of their body is still clear. I like your shrimp! It even has the stripe down the back.
