Can a Coral Banded shrimp survive without it's 2 claws?

My coral banded shrimp lost his 2 claws from my other coral banded shrimp. I know it is not recomended that you keep 2 in a tank but I read few post where people didn't have problems and my tank is 110G with a lot of area to run and hide so I thought since bother were small they'd be ok but I thought wrong Can it survive?

yes, the claws should regrow after a couple of molts.

Jamal,
have you seem the CBS running around without his claws...I know I have woken up in the morning to find my CBS's claws on the bottom of the tank...I thought the fish finally had enough of his tough guy personality...but it was just the exoskeleton from a molt...HTH

Unfortunately his claws are actually missing from his body. hopefully he will survive by running from everyone and grow them back

Add some iodine as this will help speed up the regrowth process! You should add someafter he molts also to help his new exoskeleton harden up quicker!
