This might fall in the category of a "typical noob" question but I was taking some pictures of my CRS and noticed a distinct black line running the entire length of the shrimp, is this normal? I'm expecting it is but I did see pictures of ghost shrimp with 'white' lines running through them which people indicated are parasites.

Here is a picture of the said shrimp:


Another angle:


Normal? Parasite?

The parasite you might have heard about I have seen pictures of. It is a long thread-like worm that lives near the head of the shrimp. The pic I saw was a ghost shrimp, and the parasite eventually left on its own without harming the shrimp. You can search for the thread on www.petfish.net.
