Why is my emerald crab turning white

I wonder why my emerald crabs are turning white. I put iodine in my tank- could they be molting?

Is there anything special I should feed them? I bought dried seaweed today. They love the krill

If they have been eating krill, I would lean towards the molting train of thought, but mixing up their diet IMO is a good idea. Could be some sort of deficiency. I feel that a varied diet is a good way to promote the health of your stock. What isn't in one food , may be in another.
