Hmm. Very curious. I am pretty sure it wasn't a molt. The shrimp molted twice when I had it in the QT
. Then the molt looked like a snakeskin, clear and an opaque white. This time it looked like a dead shrimp you buy at the supermarket.
And I haven't seen him in weeks.
I am also pretty sure there are no pistol shrimp in the tank. Never heard any clicking coming from the tank, but I suppose it's possible. The hermits are very tiny, the shells are less than 3/8" in diameter. That's too small to harm a shrimp, isn't it?
