mystery fish?

So I got some shrimp and soon after putting them in the water and the couple of stems they came with this little guy appears. I asked the guy I got from and he said they came from a shrimp only tank. Also this isnt the first time this has happened to me but this is the longest ive had one...

Whats yall thoughts on what this could be?

Ok only thing possible I can think that happen is that my rainbows layed eggs on some water sprite then I moved them to a different tank and they hatched there...

Is that a long shot?

Seeing how this is the second time its happened im bound to believe it...

Maybe too soon to tell. I once moved some cabomba and moss from a tank with danios into a new tank and several days later I saw a baby danio appear. Unfortunately I was in the middle of a fishless cycle and it did not last long.
