I don't know how one would give a positive feedback on this situation. You say it was stolen and all we can say is sorry and how did that happen. When you do the math, people rarely get struck by lightning, but they do. Your shrimp could have jumped out of the tank even if its a slim chance, which is more likely and mathematically more plausible than a burgler coming into your home and stealing a $30 shrimp and not a tv or computer that's worth $200+.

Agreed, sorry.

Not to mention, having a net or cup to catch the thing, leaving no trail of water. Then expecting a shrimp that has probably been rohomed 5 times by now to adjust well again in a new home.

I've had inverts make it 20 feet from a tank and found dried up cherry shrimp in spider webs. Strange happens.
