Blue Velvet parasite?


Recommended Posts

Looked into my BV tank today and saw this guy... that red line near the swimmerets, is that natural? or is it a parasite of some kind? I know they come from rili's so red headgear and what not popping up is not uncommon... thoughts? sorry for the bad picture

I too have had lots of red when they are peewees and juvies but the end up turning all blue except for a small percentage of them retain the red into adult hood. That is not a parasite or any deformity it is a normal blue velvet shrimp by my standards :)
