I think that inverts change color once they are established and comfortable in your tank. I have read of crawfish turning blue once they get established. I am not sure if this is the case with you or not, but it could just be settled in now. Welcome to AA

When in doubt, do a water change!

If someone gives good advice, thank them with some rep points!
