White dots on my ghost shrimp

My ghost shrimp has white dots on his carapase (chest)
It looks as if it is ICH, but I thought ICH attack fishes only
Any ideas what can this white dots be?
Note:
I don't have any fishes in my aquarium

I cannot see much in the pics, but from my experience, the shrimp will be mostly clear right after molting, then get a little dirtier looking as time goes on, till they molt again. I dont think shrimp can get Ich.

Does your shrimp look like this? If so, completely normal.


PS: Ghost shrimp ROCK!

OK, just a little more about the rocking of ghost shrimp-

Just now this one grabbed a whole Hikari sinking carnivore pellet and dragged it up to its lair in the "trees." They really are cool little piglets. And much bigger than cherries. AND you can see the food in their heads, which is nice.
