Hello, I recently bought a shrimp on a whim when I was browsing my LFS to add to my 10 Gallon, Guppy, Platy tank. I didn't do any research before the purchase and have been very lucky that my aquarium keeping knowledge and the knowledge from the store owner has allowed me to see this shrimp excel in her (female; identified by the store owner) new home. Since then I have done some research that will be beneficial to a long shrimp life but some specific questions were not found through search engines. My shrimp is alive and well and spends most of it's day hiding, coming out periodically to feed on algae. Perhaps I can describe what it looks like to help you positively identify it's species. At the pet store, the shrimp was translucent, but after a few days to a week in my 10 gallon tank, it has become slightly red, or pink. (I wish I could take a photo) I assume it's a Ghost Shrimp, despite it's slightly red coloring. Is it possible for Ghost Shrimp to have any color? Could my "Omega One: Super Color Flakes" attribute to the color? Today, I found that my shrimp had molted recently, to my surprise, as I didn't know it would do that. A white shell laid in the corner of the tank, fearing it was a dead fish or shrimp, I used my aquarium dedicated turkey baster (wonderful aquarium tool) to lift the shell up and caught it with a small net. Now that the shell is out of the tank I could easily throw it away, but if I left it in the tank would it decay and disappear or be beneficial to leave it in? I have many tiny, empty, snail shells littering my 30 Gallon Tiger Barb that don't seem to decay and just sit there (adding to the decor). If my Shrimp were to molt again, I might not find the shell until a tank cleaning, so you can see why I want to know if it's a concern. Thank you for your time reading my post, and hopefully you can provide me with some experienced knowledge and help me find answers to my questions.
