I believe it is one of the trace minerals that they add to the food that account for the blue coloration, but I forget what.

Other causes could be pH is too low, OEBT like a slightly higher pH than other Card. shrimp.

Might also be stress from ammonia or temperature.
I assume you mean Caridina and nor Cardinal. Anyways, OEBT like neutral water while Bees like slight acidic (6-6.8?) water.

Does ANYONE have them available right now? They're supposed to be for part of a Christmas gift but my supplier apparently underestimated demand and is out.

I'm not looking for reds, brunettes, blondes, or BTOE, just a nice range of colored up OEBT.

The shrimpfarm website has them really expensive though. 25$ each ouch. Check out eBay or aquabid I know they have them there. I just saw 10 for 60$ shipped.

Thanks Tanman19az. Yes I want to get back to the hobby so bad. The past year and a half was bad for me. All of my shrimps died slowly, hundreds of them ($$$$$$$) due to bad water ( I am kind of sure) after we moved into the new house. So, I've made some adjustment and improvement to filter my water and I am ready to get back to the game.

Sorry about your losses. But shrimping is really fun, and it's great of you to get back on the horse!
