Your GH may be on the low side.

White is not solid as regular A grade JPRL.

I keep my CRS at GH6, white turns out nicely.
no problem to molt.

before I kept them at GH4, white is pretty thin.

I adjust my RO to GH5, and change 25% weekly.
some mineral rocks in the tank would bump up GH a little.

Her color is a little faded. Just moved her to new tank last week and into the box yesterday. Will check the GH today. Thanks

The white of berried female normally is less solid compare to young adult which never berried.

That's why breeder only shows photo of young adult to show their stock quality.

I have females you can't tell that are berried the white is so deep and thick. In my highest grade prl tank I keep gh3 so the water is soft and so only the strongest thickest shelled babies survive. It will feed out the ones with thinner shells

Rude.

The shrimp looks good to me. It might just be the camera or lighting, making the shrimp not-so-photogenic.

Agree with you.

Higher grade PRL can keep solid white in wide range of GH.

but lower grade CRS, will show the difference in GH change.

what's why the high end PRL cost much more than regular CRS.
