Well I came back from a 1 day trip to northern california and when I came back home my pistol shrimp was missing. I only have a 40 gallon tank and I know where his burrow is. The reason I think he is missing/gone/dead
(... is that his burrow was getting filled with sand, which to owners of pistol shrimp know that is very unusual. I tried to resist the urge but could not help it and tried to sift the sand beneath his live rock and see if he was trapped in a cave in but I found nothing. I pretty much cannot find my pistol shrimp and am very sad. The only tankmates he has is 2 clarkii's, 1 lawnmower blenny, 1 watchman goby, and cleaner shrimp/hermit crabs/1 emerald crab
I don't know what I am hoping to hear
,,,,my thoughts are he starved to death and is under my sand somewhere.
I am not expecting miracle advice but does anybody have any thoughts on this? I miss my shrimp very much
