Infection?

I would love to say bacterial infection, since that seems to be the standard answer for that type of question.  However the body is not paper white.

 

Often the fogginess of shrimp tissue in my experience is multiple causes.  Sometimes just denseness of tissue and they are healthy.  Other times too little oxygen, which can cause deaths.

Since the picture isn't very clear, we cannot determine 100% if it's bacterial infection.

If it's not bacterial infection, it could be pH swings or your water is very dirty.

 

What type of filtration are you using?

 

The more details you provide us, the better we can assist you.

Can you try scooping it into a clear container or breeder box and take pics of it?

 

More oxygen is most likely not the case since you're using a sponge filter.

I actually have a tank of yellows that look just like that. I too thought bacteria infection, but it's been 5 months now and none have died. They just have off coloring.

 

Can we see more pictures of your shrimps?

 

Are you using tap water or RO water?

A few that were willing to pose for a sec. They were pulled from other setups for fear of infection, but I've had zero deaths, and no new examples appear across any tank. Seems like they are just poorly colored/culls, at least in my case.

As far as if this product helps or not, I cannot say. :(

Your water/foods might be lacking a certain mineral require to have a nice yellow body.

 

Your picture does look like culls though
