    check water parametres. What ph do you have? It should be sickness or "bad" mood.

    I suppose first pic is "after" and second pic is "before"?

    That fish overload can give them stress.

    I think the gravel you are using is not best for CRS, it could be lack of minerals or even too much metals that are not suitable for optimizing CRS coloration.

    Food has certain degree of influence in the color, but not to the extend of the difference in first and second picture.

    The can be two reasons as i know

    a. some shrimps when they are young and small tend to have more white, but while they grow up, they will lose it.

    b. when the water isnot very suitable for them, most crs will lose white, if you manage to change the water to good condition, some of they can recover, but many can not.
