I got three amano shrimp a few days ago and put them in my brackish tank. I did acclimate them to brackish too quickly so I have been worried something may go wrong. One of them is turning a reddish color on his back and on the very bottom of his belly. What is this?

I read driftwood could be a factor so I included a pic of that. Sorry for the poor quality, I got the amanos to help with the algae along the walls, which clouds my photos.

Thanks for the info guys! To answer a previous question, all the markings on him changed from brown to red on the outside, not to poop chute :p

A second question since were on the subject, are they often cloudy after molting? One of them molted and looks really cloudy in color. With my ghosties that means they'll be dead soon, is it the same for amanos?
