Cheery Shrimps not so cheery?

Recommended Posts

Any chance of some pictures? The only place I have ever seen my cherrys go gold is when the females are saddled ready to breed and when the eggs are later in her legs getting fanned when the eggs can be green or yellow.

My cherry shrimp are in a pretty brightly lit tank, with white sand substrate with quite a few plants and they are super dark red



And a more orangeish one


I also have quite a bit of timber in the tank (maybe that helps them turn dark), also dead tree leaves like Indian Almond and fish. I have heard that fish will sort of stress the shrimp (even though the fish dont touch them) into taking on darker colours.
