Ghost shrimp? Does this look normal?

When I got this guy about six weeks ago. He was a translucent grey for a few weeks then after a molt he started to look like this. Is this color normal for a ghost shrimp?

Mine would be a translucent color until they were accustomed to the tank and then would color up like yours.

Sounds like its normal to me. Thanks for the tips. I really like the color showing. I am hoping to add some Amano's ASAP.
