Purple Cherry Shrimp

I have this Cherry tank set up for almost 10 years and I saw this couple days ago while feeding time.

Wonder if she's nearing a molt?

Any chance this was early morning?

I suspect faded color, shrimp turned "blue" which often happens at night... (with some shrimp) and they can appear 'off' first thing in the morning, but regain color within an hour or so.

At night, before the lights went off? Or after? (and turning them back on?)


Sorry, just want to be absolutely clear!

She's almost pink, very pretty. I noticed a burgundy one in my cull tank the other day, pardon the film algae on the front glass:

Is that a neo or Caridina?
