it depends on the extent of injury. are there missing appendages or a crack in the shell? missing antennae or eyes? best to isolate in a breeder net within the tank for recovery

im not sure how to explain it really but i will try... it kinda looks as if the part from the head to the body or tail part has been slightly pulled kind of injury!

Oh that is just a forum signature lol. Something @ the end of a user's post for fun.

Anyways, isolating your injured shrimp will help speed up the recovery process, and that description sounds like a bad molt issue.

Posting a picture could help determine best course of action for what injury it may be and how to treat.

Water parameters? If it's a failed molt, you might want to check to make sure there's not something wrong with your water.

Are you talking about the clear line between the head and body?

Some say that's only there before a molt. Others say it's an indicator of shrimp growing faster than their shell. I haven't noticed anything bad from it, so I don't even worry about it.
