Orange ghost shrimp?

My ghost shrimp is not clear anymore he is kinda a really light orange color? Is this normal? I recently treated for ich could that be a sign of stress?

He eats my Goldie's leftovers which is a special food my LFS makes and they'll sometimes eat the wafers that my plecos won't finish. And I tested ich with ich-ease.

ghost shrimp will change color (slightly) and take on colors based on the food they are eating. I've had ghost shrimp go orange, green, brown, but they always end up pink in the end.
