Shrimp ID

What type of shrimp are these? The store had them labeled as feeders. The first has a blue tint to it. The second is almost completely clear but it has a off white stripe down its back. There are six of them total but these are the only two I see.
I think they might be ghost shrimp but they do not have much of a arch to their back.

They look like red cherry shrimp "culls".

I agree with Fresh on the first one, but on the second one it almost looks to me like an amano shrimp. i could be wrong though.

Here is another better picture of the second one. It is much smaller than my ammano shrimp and does not have brown spots on its side.

I have seen that "racing stripe" on RCS in pics and in some of the ones I have. Yep, I'd say these are non colored RCS.
