Very colorful pacific cleaner shrimp!

I came home one day to find my pacific cleaner shrimp had molted! Later that day, I noticed something else different about the shrimp, it's antennae were turning a brilliant pink. The antennae of the other shrimp are still as snow white as they always have been, however.

Also, I've googled images of the pacific cleaner shrimp, and oddly enough none of the others have any antennae colors other than white?

Thats pretty cool. My two cleaners antennae always stay white after a molt.
