View Full Version : Ghost shrimp spot?

I just picked up some Ghost shrimp and one of them has a red spot right on top of the arch or his back. Is this normal or is it something I should be worried about? They aren't in my tank yet. Should I keep him out for a while?

I see them like that at walmart sometimes. Apparently they got hurt while being caught.

Sorry for the old post, but actually I was curious if anyone else kept them alive with those type of wounds. I buy some once in awhile for my fish, so they don't last very long anyways. I see some in stores with really bad wounds, and they seem to be eating and moving with no problems. Think they would heal with a molt?

That red spot is a normal marking.
