WOAH I had a heart attack today when i found this in my tank

I was feeding the fish today i have 2 shirmp a cleaner and pepermint today the pepermint came out to eat i hardly ever see it you would think its not even in the tank anymore sometimes but today something els in the conner of my eye comes out to grab a bite! i thaught it was something that jumped in the tank for food or something maby out side of the glass so i go over to that side of the tank and i see a Dark blue looking shrimp about the size a little smaller then the pepermint and hanging out in the same area as the pepermint stays it came out a few times and i got a better look at it too bad i left my camera at work today i would love to add a picture but does anyone know where it could have came from or what kind of shirmp it might be?

-Ed

sounds like a mantis shrimp. They're greenish in color.
