Peppermint shrimp turned blue

We just picked up 2 peppermint shrimp from the lfs and they were both red when they went into the container after a few minutes or so one of them turned blue. The lfs had no idea why. Its been about 2hrs now and he is still lively just not red! Anyone know whats going on??
