For everything isopod - breeding, keeping, and as clean up crews. Also known as pill bugs and rolly-pollies!

I have orange isopods in my tank. I've had them for close to two years now. They've all been orange. But when I was cleaning my tank the other day I found a grey-black isopod! I'm curious if he's a genetic anomaly or if my orange isopods could lose their colour over a couple generations or what. Is there anything I should add to the tank to help them retain their bright orange colour?
It could be color morphs (not uncommon in isopods) or just one that shed it's skin recently.
My 5 crabs: Dilly (ecuadorian, medium-small), Flame (purple pincher, medium), Fleck (purple pincher, medium), Bubbles (blueberry, medium-large), Indigo (blueberry, large-extra large).
