Noticed that some species of shrimps tends to become blue when stressed, like Malayan. Not sure if this is the case for you, I hope not, keep us updated. :)

I see, yeah malayans get blue when stressed.

Hmmm i cant update cause i dont know which shrimp is it.. even if its dead it would had been eaten up by my yamatoes.. so no idea... :p :rolleyes:

How about tigers? they get blue sometimes, is it an indication they are stressed? if so I have no idea at all what are they stressed at :confused:

Tigers do not turn blue, it turns milky white when stressed.
