They are gone!!

No signs of either one, they must have died and the nassarius
busted up and dragged them under. It kills me every time I feed he
just pops up out of nowhere and wants to eat. They must have
the most keen sense of smell ever!!

nasarius snails don't pull the dead meat down. they will eat it where it is. i bought a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp that had molted a few days earlier so it died and they snails started eating it on the sand bed as well i just had a turbo snail died and the same thing

Oh well, It is weird they both died together like that, usually the go seperately.
I hope somebody ate them and cleaned up the mess. I have too many fish in
my 40 gal tank because my 20 gal just crashed and I had to scramble my maroon clown and red hawkfish & chili coral to live with the others, I lost everything else ph spike.
Many snails, starfish, bt anemone, feather duster, crabs... I hate that!!!! It happens and you just keep on........ I am addicted, at least it isn't crack.

they are a mated pair right. i'm still convinced they are in hiding, and i don't know if the coral banded shrimp are noternal like my peppermint shrimp is which likes to hide when they lights are on and roams around when they are out. try getting a red lense and put it over a flash light and look for them at night to see if you can find them or if they really are gone

quoted from live aquaria

"
Native to the oceans of Indonesia, Stenopus hispidus is perhaps the most widely distributed shrimp in the sea. It usually hangs upside-down in caves or crevices, with only its antennae emerging from the hole. While molting, the Banded Coral Shrimp will often hide from sight for 1-2 days in the rocks of the reef. In the home aquarium, provide sufficient room for the Banded Coral Shrimp so it can move about freely without its long antennae touching neighboring corals or anemones. "

how long have they been missing for
