My Amano shrimp do similar things. although always within the water. They LOVE to perch themselves (all 6 of them) up on top of the heater, just at the water top. it makes be a bit nervous, because if they really wanted to, they could climb out.

There is no predators in the tank, ph around 7.6..the other shrimp move normaly, i believe only this particular one have the issue.

I have a red sea nano filter that has the filter intake covered by a AC filter sponge, but even with that I noticed that I would see little babies inside. I switched to a more denser sponge, and I stopped getting babies in the filter, but that causes the filter to suffer from a much slower intake, so the outflow is very small. One day I noticed a larger almost adult CRS in the filter, and when I took out the sponge to get it out, I noticed that there were actually three shrimp in there. Three CRS and one RCS. I didn't think they were sucked in as babies and grew up that large, then one night I noticed that if I had my water line too high, and with the outflow being slow, a shrimp was actually climbing up into the filter!! I keep the water line a little lower now ;)
