White Fuzz + Berried OEBT = Normal?


I've kept a colony of orange eye blue tigers for a little over two years and have never seen this with any berried oebts before. It looks like some white fuzzy stuff under their stomache.

Is this normal or should I isolate the shrimp?

That's a fungus for sure.

I'm not sure what you'd use for fungi, as I've never had it. Someone else needs to chime in here.

Does not look normal to me. I know some people have been having issues with a yellow type of fungus from some imports, but not sure it this is the same type.

I don't know what the solution is, but I would start by quarantining that lady ASAP.
