Frosted cherries?

Some of my RCS have developed a whiteish line running all the way from the head to tail. It looks like a light snow coating. Ive never seen this before, should I be worried? I'm calling them "frosted" cuse thats exactly what it looks like. Pictures to follow...

Of course mostly it is at random. If you could breed them to a pure strain, you could have your very own Frosted Cherry Line and have a more expensive price on them.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

They're racing stripes. At night, shrimp have drag races and the theory is the racing stripes helps them go faster.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

I've been breeding my cherries to keep this actually...

It appears more on the Sakura grade shrimp than the higher grades.
