He may just be hiding, I have one in a 34g that I rarely see. If you wanted to make sure that he is still alive, you could try to put a little bit of food around the rocks to see if he comes out. Good luck!

Peppermint shrimp are nocturnal, and would prefer to stay hidden and out of the light. I only see my during feeding time, and even then it's just a blur from him.
