This amano shrimp is hiding more than usual and she doesn't come out to eat. Last week she started to look opaque instead of transparent and last night I noticed she now looks reddish but she is coming out onto the driftwood today. The water param are great and all the other shrimp are normal. I've had them all for about two years now. Do you think she's dying or is it something else? I've never had a shrimp do that before.

Thanks for responding Chrissy_Bee but I don't think that's it. I've had these 4 particular shrimp two years and usually they don't look like this one before moulting. I've been keeping shrimp for just over 4 years and I've never seen an amano do this. Even when my first one died of old age (3yrs) she didn't turn reddish. I find this very bizarre.
