Is this colour normal for an amano or should I be concerned?

I just got a few amano shrimp for my tank and one of them is a slightly off white instead of clear like the others. Does this look like disease or is this normal for them before molting? My tank has 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, 10 nitrates and pH 7.2.

Looks normal to me. If the shrimp appears opaque white or pinkish you should be worried. Usually when mine shed they appear shiny-whitish for a day

If they are newly introduced, I think it is normal.
Fish and shrimp from fish stores are not well fed or acclimated due to transportation and overstock. It is quite often to see pale color on those newly bought livings. They will be fine in a few days after they have enough food and rest.
