Is this a normal ghost shrimp???

Dees this ghost shrimp have some kind of infection or something. My fish all starting getting sick and dropped off one by one and I am thinking maybe it is something this ghost shrimp has. My water has been perfect during the fish getting sick, so I think this shrimp might have something to do with it. Anybody have a clue??

What are you asking about?

If the shrimp looks normal? The species of the shrimp?

That is a ghost shrimp, but there are a couple of different species that we call ghost shrimp.

looks normal to me. i really don't think ghost shrimp bring disease that affect fish into the tank. maybe someone else has proof that they do.

Then again sometimes they get whitish before they molt.
