A pregnant shrimp can be easily recognized by its eggs under its belly. These eggs often have a dark color, but can also be orange, brown or transparent.
The color of the eggs does not say anything about the health or quality of the eggs themselves.
Your shrimp was so beautiful in color and now that she is pregnant the color has faded. Maybe the white portion is even a bit transparent. This is completely normal with pregnant shrimp. The color becomes lighter and sometimes even transparent, especially as the pregnancy progresses. When the shrimp has given birth, the color will largely return, but it may also be that the color remains somewhat faded after delivery.
