zos, does color indicate species?

pretty much what is in the subject.

the lfs gave me a snail shell with a couple of brilliant orange zos with incredible orange centers. these things practically glow in the dark. the thing is they are multiplying (this is good). the bad thing is some plain brown with mint green centers are popping up. is this a different species, or some type of genetic morph?

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

Color usually just represents a different color morph of the same species.

is it possible to weed the ugly ones out to get a more pure stain?
