dont blame the pistol just yet. if those were your only shrimp id say it was him but because you have two left i think i know the issue. unfortunately skunk cleaners seem to kill other shrimp and prefer to stay in pairs. there was an article in a recent magazine that said even if allowed plenty of room and food they will still usually do this

Sps addict!

One of the remaining cleaner shrimp molted a couple of days ago and is fine, so it appears that Classklown is correct. I had wondered about the pistol shrimp, though, as I did see it snap at one of the cleaner shrimp when it came close one night. It almost looked as if the goby was luring it toward the pistol shrimp.... All is well for now, though.

Thank you for your help in figuring this out.
