Red face Tricked by a fire shrimp

After just looking into my tank shortly after i added my fire shrimp to my aquarium, i notice the shell of him sitting on the sand. So i think to myself oh my its been no more than 3 hours and this guys already been attacked, but i don't have any fish that would have attacked it. So after removing the skeleton, i thought, i think it molted its skin, because their wasn't the big feelers attached to this shell.. So after a near heart attack, there he is sitting on the back one of my LR's. What a close call that was!

Happens all the time with crabs, shrimp and lobsters. I`ve had a few scares.

Me too. My cleaner shrimp molts within an hour after i change my water. At first, I would prepare for a funeral but then, there he is. Hermits get me a lot too.
