Shrimp ID needed

Can anyone ID this shrimp? The LFS called it a red spot shrimp although the spot is more peach than red. I can find nothing on the net about them. Could this simply be a "painted" ghost shrimp?

The one on the leaf is the one in question,

The one on the rock is a amano. These are a little bit smaller.

Send a message via Yahoo to Devilishturtles
So you mean the one on the RIGHT is the one in question?

Sorry, I don't have a clue, but have a look through these pictures and see if you can maybe ID it there.
