my peppermint shrimp and cleaner shrimp are gone!!!
Hey guys my peppermint shrimp and cleaner shrimp are gone!!! I was on vacation about an hour and a half away and gone for a week but i came back in the middle of the week to feed everything and just do a routine check up lol. Everything was fine and i went back to where i was vacationing. I came back and my 2 shrimp are gone!!! I looked around and after about 30 mins of searching for something i saw my red serpent star. I know there not supose to eat other things but the thing is like 3x bigger and is really fat and looks stuffed!!! Ill keep on looking for the other culprits also the cleaner shimp was not small it was really big, one of the biggest cleaner shrimp i've ever saw!!!:con fused:
Check the filter and overflows. They might have just gotten sucked up. Do you have any large fish in the tank?
Also, its possible they are molting, they shed their exoskeleton or whatever and hide for 2-3 days while their new one hardens up.
i have searched my overflow and my dilter and it wouldn't of went down to my sump anyway because i have a sponge that only lets water and little stuff pass through and my shrimp never hide after molting but thanks for the thought!!!
On an unrelated note, that tank is way too small for those 2 tangs, even if they are little baby ones. You should return them asap. Good luck with your shrimp, I would go for days without seeing mine, and one day they would just appear again.
