Crs mia???


Got 5 of them in a few days ago and now for the life of me i could only find 1 of my ss+/sss CRS. They are only 1/2-3/4". It seem like i'm missing 1/day.

Empty the HOB filter, thought that they may have climped up in there, not there.
Checked behind the rock. not there
Checked every single plants. not there

They were eating and move about and around normally on the second day with the rest of the rilis


Tank info could be found here.

The problem is if a shrimp dies in a fairly population tank, they get eaten by the other shrimp the moment they stop twitching their legs and the other shrimp will eat everything of the dead shrimp. Not sure why they could be dying but if you fully searched every area 3 times over, then maybe that happened. You have to search like 3 times though, its always hard to make sure. I just moved my tigers from yellow tank. Should be easy to spot them all. It was only a 5.5 gal, not a lot of room to hide, yet when I thought I was done, 5 hours later I see another tiger. Get that one, 3 hours later, another. lol. They can be sneaky.

Try starving the tank for two days. Then when you place some food in afterwards you should see all of them. If not it means they died :[
