What is this little thing, a parasite?


Recommended Posts

Just noticed it as it was swimming around the gravel and then started feeding off the shrimps exoskeleton, these are snowball shrimps which I ordered recently and they have been in the tank for a week now, when I got them I didnt notice any signs of disease(no spots on them, but I guess it would be pretty hard to notice a white parasite on a snowball) There were 12 molts in the past 3 days (theres a total of 13-14 shrimps)

Can this be a baby shrimp or what the heck is this ? 


-this little critter can be seen while swimming towards the exoskeleton during the first 4 seconds of the video
