Algae growth(?) on a bamboo shrimp.

Ill let the pictures speak for themselves... What should I do guys? Before the questions roll in ammonia and nitrite are 0, didnt test nitrate but I always read really low or 0 for that as well, ph is a solid 7. Also, I added a picture of the healthy ones for reference. Thanks.

I dont believe they are properly equipped for picking at each other, that would be nice though.

It happens on snail shells all the time. The next time they molt, they'll have new clean shells again.
