Brown spot in ghost shrimp. Rust disease?

One of my ghost shrimp have 2 brown spots on the backside near the tail. I think it may be rust disease. What should I do? It's only on one shrimp three others look fine. I have had them for 4 days and just noticed it today.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm having trouble finding pictures of the reddish spot that appeared on my Amano shrimp last week. The picture of your ghost above is the closest I've found on this site. Were you able to treat it successfully?

I know this is probably too late, but I had issues with rust disease on some ghost shrimp I had. The ones that had it died eventually. Lowering temps and raising pH might have helped some, but I think it only vaguely prolonged their lives. I attached a picture because mine were pretty blatant examples. Hopefully others have better success!
