White spot on RCS

I recently noticed a white spot at the tip of one of my RCS's antennae. Not sure what it is but it's about the size of a grain of sand. I recently got this shrimp so I'm not sure if it's new or if it's always had it. Just wondering what it is and if I need to treat it

Could be vorticella, a parasite. If you only see it on one shrimp, you can do a salt bath.

If you notice several shrimp with it, you can treat the tank using Paraguard (start off with a 1/4 dose) or Fenbendazole (dog/goat dewormer).
