I am glad the shrimp seem to hang out in the front right corner most of the time. Not sure why. Must be something there that they are attracted to.

I noticed that, but did not know what to think of it?

Despite the coloration the shrimp is perfectly healthy. The clear banded shrimp is a color morph. I think it's unique and cool.
Although I don't see them too much in people's pics and videos of their tanks, in some anachialine pool populations it looks like it more widespread and might even be the dominant color form based on this pic i found.
