amano ill?


One of my amano shrimp that was previously berried, is now turning black on its back, compared to the others who have a yellowish stripe down a clear back its very noticeable, what could be the cause? They eat normal stuff like algae, nothing out of the norm. Thanks. Also what is this damn algae that everything refuses to eat!

It could be what it's eating, two of mine turned dark brown when they picked at my driftwood all day. The splotch does look green around the edges..hopefully it's only that..

Is the amano still staying active?

Agreed, my shrimp's back will be red, green, brown etc depending on what they've eaten. Does the shrimp appear lethargic?

No the shrimp is acting perfectly normal, it must just be what you all suggested and be something its eating, all that goes in the tank is hikari micro pellets though. Strange. Thanks!
