Can anyone ID this shrimp?

I got an original batch of RCS from Florida. I had 75+ RCS in a 40 breeder. It did look like there may have been some orange or yellow, also some were really really red. I had a 5 gallon tank with 10 blues, but the person that sent them to me definitely mixed in a few OEBTs. Unfortunately in my 40 breeder my RCS started to disappear. So in panic I took what was left and put them in my 5 gallon tank with the blues. From there (bad luck continues) my 5 gallon ended up crashing leaving very few shrimp...5. 1 yellowish, a red, 1 mostly clear with stripes, mostly clear with red and a blue. After some time the shrimp multiplied and this was the only one that grew and liked like this.

Well if I'm understanding you correctly the only possible types of shrimp that you were aware of owning are cherries and OEBT? The lone survivor shrimp with red and blue sounds interesting but not sure what that could be either.. I also believe RCS and OEBT do not cross bread so my best guess would be a color mutation for a OEBT. Time for a genetics project! Maybe a few more pictures of this guy would help and maybe the other shrimp in the tank too

I'm confused. So you bought RCS buy there were some yellow and orange neos in the group? And then you bought some blue neos but there were OEBT mixed with them. Then you mixed them all together and got this guy? Very interesting...looks like a blue velvet with a racing stripe like yellow shrimp!

Okay, I think I may have figured out. Since I have a heavily planted aquarium I can't always see what is in it. I have seen quite a few more shrimp then I have previously seen before.
