No, that wasn't the case for mine, anyway. I fed mine 3 times a week and I had the same thing happen to my shrimp as yours. Disapppeared!

Could there be something leaching into your tank, like copper. Do you have any other inverts? they would be the first to go.

I shouldn't think any copper has got in - I'm very careful with stuff like that!

No other inverts, no.

I've just put a new fire shrimp in after a 2+hour drip acclimation.

He's not as active as the other 3 were though! As soon as I put some food in, the others ran around and jumped up and down frantically. My new one wandered out briefly last night but didn't seem particularly interested. Tonight, he barely moved from his spot on the back of the rock.

Do other peoples' shrimp go mad when food is put in the tank? Or do they just differ a lot? I hope he's getting enough food! No reason to tell really is there.

It means shedding the external layer so growth can take place.

My Fire Shrimp seems to be doing ok (touch wood!). But, I never see him eating anything.

When I feed my fish, he goes crazy (jumping around etc.) but never seems to get any food.

He's constantly wandering about all day but I never see him with any food!

Should I be feeding him something?
