HELP!!! Worried about our cleaner

Bought our first 2 cleaner shrimp on Sunday but we have noticed like a blister on the side of one of the shrimp and I'm concerned as to what it is, the shrimp seems ok and is eating fine, should I be concerned?!

Here are a couple more photos of him. If any one can help us. I've tried searching the net, but can't really find much information on it.

What else do you have in there with them? Is there any chance it could have been stung by anything in the tank? I have never seen this on a shrimp before but a sting from most things would result in a blister on a fish, I can't see why a shrimp would be any different.

Don't worry about it. Next time it molts, it will be gone.

Yeah I agree, one of mine had a black line on him a while ago, that when he molted.

Nope... We have 2 shrimp and 3 hermit crabs. Though we think it may have been there when we bought it, we didn't notice, though saying that, that was a shrimp only tank.
We're worried as we'd plan to add our first fish this weekend. I don't want to be passing anything on.

It hasn't seemed to effect him though. he's still very active, and eating fine. Strange!

He's fine and to be honest, if your water is good I wouldn't let it stop me adding fish!

Ohh ok... That's a big relief.

I tried to search it. And found it could be a possible isopad, which scared me. As that will move on to other tank-mates.
But our shrimp didn't have the side effects so wasn't sure.

Thank you
