Rostrum question


I have a female that has what looks like a green fungus on her rostrum, it does not hinder her in anyway and I have tried my best to find the answer by myself but there really isnt alot of info about shrimp diseases that are put in laymans terms. Thank you for the help.


Edited to add that if needed I will do my very best to get a pic of her.

I tried tonight to get a pic but she is hiding.. could be that she was the last to moult.( there was a shell last night)

As long as it does not spread and does not hinder her, I am ok with it.. altho curiousity does get the best of me. I was hoping that with the moult she would get rid of it, but I dont know enough about this. Thats why I am asking.
