Found a Shrimp 10 days after putting in LR!

I saw a shrimp for the 1st time in my tank tonight...i wonder if theres any more? the lights were off in my basement, so i turned them on, took a peek and sure enough there was a shrimp running around! i tried to take a pic of it, but it scurried away under some LR very quickly. it was a pale white, kind of transparent looking (looked something like a freshwater ghost shrimp). does anyone know what kind of shrimp this could be? i dont think it's a pistol b/c both "claws" looked to be the same size, but i could be wrong

55 Gallon FOWLR
80 lbs keys rock * 15 hermits * 17 snails * 4 stars * 1 urchin * 1 ocellaris clown * 1 yellow watchman goby * 1 pistol shrimp * misc hitchhikers
