What is this coloration on my shrimp?


Recommended Posts

I don't see anything abnormal in the last two pictures (hard to tell in the first 2 when it is out of the water).  What coloration are you referring to?  The patch of darker yellow behind the head are the eggs that are developing and is called being "saddled".  The dark spot between the eyes and saddle is normal, the bright yellow on the back is called a "backline" and is normal as well.
