Color of my bamboo shrimp

I got a bamboo shrimp several weeks ago and he has been colored medium maroon/bronze until today. Yesterday I found a couple of fish with ich, so I raised the temperature in the tank to about 82.

Previously, the bamboo shrimp has been very sedentary, hardly moving at all. Tonight, he is sorta yellowish/greenish and is very actively moving all around the tank and eating heartily, with none of this being common to him previously.

Has the bamboo shrimp just molted or is this a normal coloration or should I be concerned?

I think it has to do with the raise in temp. Mine turn orange in high temps and greenish yellow at night.
