Where did this bronze neo come from?

I only have blue neos in my tank. About 2-3 weeks ago I see two lighter colored brown neos appear. I'm not a breeder so no need to cull, but I found it fascinating. Within the next few days, the two brown ones disappeared. Fast forward to yesterday, this big bronze looking one appears, and she is berried!

Is it true that all shrimp carry the recessive genes of their line and their babies can turn just about any color? It's pretty crazy! Honestly, she stands out so much and I think her coloration is beautiful! I didn't think I'd like anything other than blue! Haha!

these guys are masters at hiding and that berried one must be 4 or 5 months old to breed, what as happened there is a pair have bred and thrown out a couple of brown unseen to you and they have grown and mated, you could get anything out of this one.
