    Shrimp growing Algea

    One of my cleaner shrimp has some type of algea/fungus growing on its feelers. Im not sure exactly what it is but theres something growing and its kinda gross. What should I do? It looks like hair algea which is nowhere else in the system.

    Dark,
    If it's under the tail, those are eggs. If you have multiple cleaner shrimp, they will often spawn every 3-4 weeks.
