Anyone know what type of shrimp this is? It came from the store in a tank that included ghost shrimp, but this is obviously not a ghost shrimp.

About an inch long, very light orange shading with light orange speckles. I’ll try to get a better pic. Thanks for responding!

I was thinking it might be a male cherry. Are they different than Amano shrimp?

Yes, different species. Cherry shrimp stay smaller and don't require SW to reproduce. Care is similar. Male cherry shrimp tend to be less colorful and smaller than the females, but they will still be the same color. There are bunches of color morphs out there--same species, just line bred for different colors/patterns.
