Pink-antennae cleaner shrimp!
One day I came home, and my pacific cleaner shrimp had molted! Strangely enough, his antennae after the molting started to turn a brilliant pink, while the other shrimp's antennae have stayed the same snow white they've always been.
Here's a picture of the pink-antennaed cleaner shrimp
that is wicked sweet! any ideas how this happened?
I'm sorry, but that looks edited to me. I was into making graphics for a good 1.5 years, if not more, untill I stopped. I know how to know an edit, and the outside of where the whiskers are are shaded too. The anntennas also look like they were placed onto the background.
No offense at all; I'm just saying thats what it looks like to me. If it is actually true, then wow. :wink:
I do admit I had to enhance the colors slightly because the camera couldn't get them exactly (Why can't they make a camera that matches the exact colors we see?), so I snapped 3 more pictures with 3 lightings to try to match the shrimp's antennae color:
1 was taken with a flash
1 with full T5
and 1 with the Actinic turned off.
I also think that the 2 cleaner shrimp mated just a few minutes ago... Maybe the pink antennae are like a mating call?
