Cherry Shrimp color change? i.e. rust???

MKnoob

Hey all my red Neocaridinas seems to be doing great - multiplying like crazy over the ~ 2 months I've had them. But I've noticed some of the older ones are getting darker with some darker spots . They are acting normal and no deaths but I'm wondering if I need to be concerned about rust? Thanks for advice for this newbie.

I have heard of a disease called rust disease I am not an expert on shrimp though maybe its just them getting old

Fairly normal for neo's to get darker as they age, especially with females.

I would guess color change. Rust usually starts are small lesions on the shell not an overall color change.
