I cut my amano shrimps head off!
So I was trimming today, and I cut in deep into some plants and out came one of my huge amano shrimp's bodies.
I had completely cut off it's head. I feel sick to my stomach right now.
I then tried to get the body out with a pair of tweezers, but the body kept retracting like it still had it's head, it kept swimming, and finally went into my glosso bed, I had to dig it out. It was still alive for about 5 mins during this time twitching away.
I had to get the body out before the fish would start to snack on it and then develop a taste for my shrimp. That amano was huge too, now that I think of how many times he molted in my tank, its a sad day.
Damn shrimp just dont move even when I brush up the plants, even when closing millimeters away from them, they just look at you.
