New breed! Houdini Shrimp
I bought 4 Amano shrimp for my 10gal a couple months back. Shortly thereafter (roughly 2 weeks later), all four are gone. I couldn't figure out what happened to them considering the tank had a lid and the only other inhabitants were some albino cories.
Fast forward to today. I went to switch outlets underneath the fish tank and lo-and-behold, there were two dead shrimp. Started looking around - another dead shrimp just outside my bedroom door in a corner.
Apparently, these guys were just not having it with my tank. I'm surprised they could last that long and travel so far outside of the water, though I do suppose they seem more sturdy than say, ghost shrimp. Better secure my lid better if I decide to grab some more :/
