for the last week, one of my ghost shrimp has this greenish stuff in it. It looks like "mucous" inside him, well the color at least, not sure what it is. Looks like its getting more more. Any ideas?

Do you have algae in your tank? It could be that he is just eating it. Rolling Eyes

Yeah, it's probably his food. I can always tell when my shrimp are stealing fish-food because they'll be tan and brown on the inside instead of green.

I have brown algae/diatoms and I see that inside the other guys. This guy just green stuff just stays inside. Its not in his digestive track, it's above it. I thought it was eggs, but I think eggs are a different color

Ghost shrimp eggs are green so it's probably some eggs in side of her. I had one that was going to have eggs, but alas the big mean krib got her.(she was a feeder) Rolling Eyes
