Question Shrimp missing!

Missing coral banded pair! They have completely disappeared. Just
got them last week and they are both gone. Would an anemone eat them?
I have a pretty large purple tip haitian that loves to eat. Would he
snag them? I don't think the fish bothered them. Weird. I have 2 fancy
nass snails would it pop up and get it if it were dead and pull it under?
I have lost a sea hare and those two coral b shrimp lately

Yeah it`s kind of hard to say. You`ll probably have some come back up in the anenome if it was the anenome. Maybe they are hiding.

I hope they are hiding. Time will tell. Maybe they are making
little CBs!

Not to worry, they just became a pair last week you say? They are just on their honeymoon you can expect to see them back in 1 to 2 weeks.

I hope they are too, I just got them and they were mated when the
got to me from SWF.com. My pistol shrimp is hiding too. He is newer
than them. I have lots of rock so lets hope they are hiding! I'll keep
you posted!

Our CBS will stand in our condy picking food pieces out. If the nem brushes against him he retaliates by pinching it. It only seems to bother the shrimp if the nem brushes against his antennae. The shrimp are pretty fast. Ours goes into the caves we have and sits there for long periods of time. I'm guessing that you will see them shortly.

I know I have a golden coral banded shrimp that I never see unless it is feeding time. I have noticed to when it molts it doesn't come out for food either for a few days. He does come out at night and hunts for bristle worms and anything else he can catch.
