Default Shrimp Identify Help Needed

The only shrimp I have added to the tank has been Ghost Shrimp from Petsmart. Is this a different species of shrimp or do I have a mutated glass shrimp. All the shrimp have been clear that I've placed into the tank. The only think that has changed to the tank is that I've done a couple of doses of Flourish Excel. I have other Ghost Shrimps from the same purchase that have remained normal.

Description: Tail is crystal white. The top of the body has blue/green color. The behaviors of the shrimp seem to be normal or ghost shrimp.

I have some ghosties that are different color. I think its just a regular ghost shrimp that has eaten some green stuff.

Robert I'm just guessing but my guess would be

caridina simoni know as "Bangladesh Simoni Shrimp" or
a nother caridia SP. " indian blue shrimp" or possible.
Caridina babaulti "blue" common name "blue shrimp"

um or it could be that ghost shrimp is just aging and getting matured. become most ghost shrimp I see are young and small till they get huge.
