Is it possible that your shrimp molted and is hiding until it's shell hardens?

Dont worry, i think all peppermint shrimp are kinda dumb. I mean my peppermint has been messing around with my tiger pistol shrimp for the last week, and i hear my pistol shrinp shooting at him all the time. One morning i will probably find what you did. What tupe of anenome is it? How big is it? I hope your fish are not in danger!
