    Woke up this morning to find one of my shrimp had a weird colored piece of something near its mouth. After looking closer I also see it near its eyes. I monitor my shrimp pretty closely and haven't seen this until today. It sort of looks like ellobiopsidae, but on/in the head and not under the tail. Any help? :(

    You're right, it does look very abnormal. Hopefully someone can tell you what it is.

    If you don't get info here you can also try on a shrimp forum or plantedtank.net
