I currently have four RCS. Two of them are definitely female, one looks more on the female side, and the fourth kind of looks male, but im not sure.
On the fourth RCS i noticed a thick, yellowish, whitish line on it's belly. It wasn't on the swimmer-thingies. Is something wrong with it? Is there anything I can do to help it?

Can you get a pic?

Not sure what that is, but I'd get more if I were you...start with 12-15 RCS, and in the right (easy) conditions, they'll breed readily and before long you'll have so many that you won't even notice aberrations on the single, random shrimp.

No problem.

Did you buy these locally, or online?

What tank are they in, and how long has it been set up?

I bought these locally (at Petco), they have been in the tank for about 2 1/2 weeks, and the tank has been set up (and cycled) for about 6 months.

Maybe it's getting ready to molt

hard to say from the photos but I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary. RCS will have a variety of colorations depending on how "pure red" they are. females will also be more solidly red than males, which tend to be more mottled red/white.

so the yellowish mark on the zoomed in pic is normal?

as best as I can tell, yes.
