They tend to change color while molting, if he’s been like this for a while your should consider adding some form of calcium it will help him molt

I wouldn't add calcium unless we know what your gH is, if it's less than 5-7 dgH, I would bump it up. What is your tap water like?

These shrimp are colour changing masters, they will change throughout their molt cycles.

Should be fine. Do you know the pH? This could give us a ballpark figure of gH. Are you running a water softener? If so you may have a higher pH but no gH.
