He's back... Now what?
So a little over a month ago I bought a couple Amano shrimp for my 150 gallon tank. Acclimated them to the tank over a couple hours and dropped them into the tank. One went right to eating and the other one hid in the rocks. I finally saw both of them a day later. I'd see them every once in a while and then poof, they were gone. I grabbed a flash light and looked everywhere for them.
Fast forward to yesterday... I was putting the freshly filled CO2 tank back under the sump and noticed a fish in the sump. Some of my White Clouds are small enough to go through the slats in the overflow and get down there every once in a while. I grabbed the net and started to move the duck weed over and went for the fish. All of a sudden there was something weird in the net, and it was not the fish I was going for. Figured out it was one of the Amano shrimp. It jumped out of the net before I could get it out of the water and I have not been able to find it again.
Problem now is since they had disappeared I bought three YoYo Loaches to help with the snails in the tank. (They have done an AWESOME job by the way) From everything I have read the YoYo Loach will eat the shrimp if they get a chance. So now I can either let him stay in the sump forever, or I move them to my Nano tank. I am planning on it being a shrimp only tank but was planning on RCS and maybe some blue shrimp. I don't think that the requirements for the Amano and the others are compatible. There is light and good water in the sump so it would not be that bad for the shrimp, but why have an animal that you can't see often.
Would it be much of an issue to keep them in the same tank?
