Blind Cherry Shrimp ..**RARE**??


Is there such thing as a blind cherry shrimp?

I was watch one of my tank and notice this amond the rest...this one eye seems to bulb out like a malawa shrimp..... It looks white but do have that black irus in the eye....

The below pic was taken in flash ..notice how the eye turn bright white while his little friend didn't..








THe below one is taken without flash....notice the eye different ..you can clearly make out the regular black dot eye on the other cherry





below one was taken with flash on...notice any difference....weird.

That is common when a shrimp is going to molt (common in all molting animals)

I've seen green and yellow eyes, as well as blue. They are blind when their skin starts separating too.

They get white eyes when they're about to molt.
