yea, they both have to go, they will get really cramped, become unhealthy, and probably contract ich and make your whole tank sick.

I`m thinking two things. One is that they molted and are hiding and the other is that your fish got hungry after not eating for a week and took your shrimp out. Those two shrimp are the most passive of the shrimp.

Just keep some hope that they might be hiding. I was convinced that my pepermint shrimp was gone once, and ended up to be hiding for a few days. Very funny guys, they'll be very active one day and then gone the next.

A little soy sauce and some hot pepper would go good with that brittle star...

try using a red LED at night to scope out their beady little reflective eyes.
