Your ghost shrimp are just about exactly the same color as my ghost shrimp, if it makes you feel any better . . . I like the red touches almost as much as the green "berries"!

|Sake||All different kinds of species are sold as ghost shrimp, I'm not sure what kind this is, but yes it's perfectly normal. Just watch it as it grows, some of them turn out to be long armed prawns, and can be very nasty to take inhabitants.|

Ghost Shrimp Turning Red?
So I have a ghost shrimp that has been developing symmetrical red spots on the antennae, legs, and tail. Is this normal? My other ghost shrimp don't have these colored spots. It seems like he gets new red spots every day.
The same shrimp with the spots is also developing yellow bars on its back and has darker yellow/green eyes than the others which are all clear.
I tried taking some pictures of it...
Is this just normal for ghost shrimp as they age? Or?
