Yeah that's what I did. 48 hours and he's doing good still. Keeping a eye out though. Never realized how shy the hermits are.

Now I'm freakin pissed. Walk into my room to see a dead shrimp. I don't know what it is I can keep any fish I want to healthy but I absolutely can't keep a shrimp alive. I acclimated this guy for 3.5 HOURS. I watched him eat yesterday... The only assumption I can make it a temp swing... Temp is at 82. A little warm....

I haven't ever been successful with shrimp either. They are simply sensitive and they can be hurt without noticing when caught, even in the fish store.

Thanks Hank. He was really fun while I had him. I just don't have a thumb for inverts I guess. I'm thinking of one of those heaters that has a meter where it shuts off once the tank hits a specified temperature because I'm pretty sure that's what happened

Glad you found him/her?
Mine used to load with eggs after every molt!
Be on the lookout as it is pretty cool.
No chance of ever raising or see any babies though.
