    Shrimp Type (what shrimp is this)

    Hi I am new to aqauscaping and recently added three Amano shrimp. From the pictures I have seen one of them doesn’t look like an amano shrimp. Can someone help me identify what shrimp it is if it’s not amano? Or do the dots appear as they get bigger, this one is still small (approx 1cm)
