weird thing in my feeder guppy tank

i got 10 feeder guppies at my lfs, but i didn't get 10 feeder guppies, i got 9 feeder guppies and 1.... thing.... i have no idea what it is but i didn't notice it till i got home. id post a picture of it but my camera is stupid.it is small, mebbe an inch, it has a long body and very clear in coloration, it actually looks almost see through. its eyes or at least what i assume are its eyes are located longer out to the sides of its head and are yellow, it has a black spot in the center of its body. it has legs that look like a crustacean and there are 6 of them, there also appears to be a bunch of other legs under what appears to be an abdomen. to be honest it looks like the most alien thing Ive seen in my feeder tank, i have no idea what the heck this thing is. it looks pretty cool though and i like weird looking fish so i think ill try keeping it. but i have no clue what it is or what it eats. any idea as to what it is, if its a shrimp then cool, but the only shrimp ive seen were pink and dipped in butter on my plate at red lobster.

shrimp are decapods which are 10 legs. Without a photo it is difficult to ID.

Thanks for replying, i figured out its a ghost shrimp, i went to my lfs and found the little buggers in a tank, it still doesnt explain why it hitch hiked into my feeder bag. it will forever remain a mystery.
