Cleaner shrimp death

One of my cleaner shrimp, the smaller one, has just died. Should I leave him in the tank or get him out?

He seemed ok last night - although all 3 are often fairly dormant until I put some food in, then they go mad.

Maybe he wasn't getting enough food? Any suggestions? I feed my one ocellaris clown brineshrimp and other frozen foods (mysis/seaweed etc.) once a day, which he guzzles back. Maybe the shrimp aren't getting enough food?

The other 2 (a larger skunk cleaner and a fire shrimp) seem ok and pretty active.


FYI: SG 1.023, pH 8.2, Temp 78-80¬įF, everything else in check.

Be sure that the little guy didn't just molt, they will often hide for a few days afterwards until their new "skin" hardens. Many have been fooled because it looks exactly like a whole shrimp.
