    Mutation? hehe, perhaps they were crossed with Golden/White Bees at one point thus the gold spots.

    It's hard to say from these pics. Can you have a closer look if the cherax looks like damaged and the shrimp hurt from the outside?

    The cherax is intact, those spots are only color, not any hurt.

    I think some disease, because I see the golden spot on the red too.

    I have a CRS with a gold splotch on it which is a mutation, but it looks different to this. The colour on mine is much more opaque... Have you changed anything in your tank lately?

    Hello,

    Sorry to revive a 6 years old thread, but... Any diagnosis on this? Did you end up losing those shrimps flashsilva?

    My CRS have started showing these golden spots also and I've been searching all over the net for some enlightenment. My parameters are all good and stable...

    Thanks!
