Can a favia...

So I woke up this morning and my favia brain was eating a shrimp that I never put in my tank. The only other shrimp is my skunk shrimp which is still here. So I'm confused could it have eaten the shrimps molt or is there a way there could have been a shrimp in my tank for 7 months without me noticing it?

Doubtful you wouldn't have noticed unless one of your rocks is literally hollow...which is possible. I'd be more willing to believe it is a molt. Favia aren't really going to capture a shrimp to eat it.

Wow beautiful favia! I got one almost like that but a little more neon teal. It would look good in my "garden"
