Looks like a glass shrimp to me, I. Had 4 of them last year and they managed to kill many of my fish

Do you keep any fry in the tank? I so I'd remove them ASAP I often caught mine reaching into the breeder grabbing fry, I eventually swapped them for some neons as I was loosing a fish nearly every night. They also used to steal the pellets of my corydoras

Any shrimp will take down fry and small fish. Ive seen several shrimp mob adult guppies and drag them to the ground.

They tend to be less aggressive if they are kept and fed properly though.
