Re: Problem with cleaner shrimp

Getting ready to molt!Mine grow algae on them regulary also!Look for the exoskelaton any day soon and leave it in tank(most natural source of calcium and everything else to grow such a beautiful creature).
Look for eggs under its tail as that is often (almost always) the cycle they grow in.Don't expect to see any baby shrimp though as raising any of the saltautolinker.com autolinking image shrimp is truly an art almost no one has figured out yet.
BTW you posted in freshautolinker.com autolinking image water(hence Jims answer) ,but the shrimp in picture is a salt water cleaner shrimp(your water should have ample iodine if you do regular water changes or dose).
