Blue velvet shrimp have discoloration on back


Recommended Posts

If you are talking about the yellowish area behind the head, those are eggs. If you hadn't heard the term before, it's called "saddled". Next time she molts if there's males in there, the eggs will get fertilized when she moves them to her tail. Then she'll carry them around for about a month (give or take a week) until they hatch.
