Is this bacterial infection?

I just got some neos for our office community tank. After 2h dripping acclimatization I add them to the tank. Some of the pumpkins are kind of milky + antennas and legs are white. 3 of the Blue velvet look even worst. Here are 2 picture of them.
If itís bacteria how to treat it? Iíll appreciate all comments.

That doesn't look bacterial in the way we normally think of it..

Ummm.. We can't really tell in the picture, but are their antennae full length?

omg that looks more petrified than blue velvety. how are they behaving? have you tested the water parameters in that tank? i wonder if its TDS shock above all as all of my community tanks have notably higher TDS?

Definitely some sickness.. Quarantine all shrimp that look like this.

Cold water. Do you have paraguard?

After getting over my shock of the pics, my thought is perhaps the gh is too high making the shell too thick.

I've never seen anything like this.

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

I'm in Bryce's boat. Never have I ever.

What is your GH? That didn't cross my mind, but it is a possibility.

But with the eaten down antennae I know there's some sickness in the tank

I'm gonna have to go with some kind of sickness perhaps bacterial infection.
I had some blue rilis go white like this......never followed up to see if they died or not.

But, I want to say the shortened antennae definitely points to something wrong.

PH 7.2-7.3,TDS 250 GH8-9.I'm using RO + tap water/ph8,kh3,gh3,tds130/
Mosura mineral+ and African cichlid buffer. Temperature in the tank is 70-71F.
Is it possible to be from very high level of oxygen? Spray bar is shooting to the water+ 2 sponge air driven filters. I can see air bubbles on shrimps bodies. There are berried shrimps, thought.

I would recommend do a large water change followed up by a dose of paraguard. Or quarantine the shrimp and treat.

So you just got them like this? If so, I doubt it's your water if they seemed to come this way.

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