I dont want to fill you with hope but.............

shrimps shed their skins to grow, and sometimes a shrimp will shed its skin during the night and then hide for a day or two... meanwhile the skin floats about and is 'recycled' by the other tank inhabitants.... the shrimp may re-appear in a day or two only a bit bigger......

Its a possability that its just the skin being eaten that you seen and the shimp is hiding?????

Hi Rockthis,

Nice that the cleaner shrimp ate from your hand. They are very friendly little creatures and will have a lot of personality, if you give them attention. They will learn to recognize you and always be glad to see you.

Now, when are you setting up your second tank, so your octo won't eat them? :smile:
