Coral Banded Shrimp Disarmed!

I bought a coral banded shrimp today...I just have not learned my Petco lesson...they broke one of his boxing arms off! He seems happy and ate some mysis shrimp when I threw a cube in. Think he'll be ok and grow it back?

Should come back as he molts. Just keep him healthy and happy.

probably will take multiple molts to get it back fully, but as stated it should come back.

I'm hoping so. He was a great find and doing very well. Of course they send the guy they are training to get him out... I look at him in the little plastic holder and I'm scratching my head because I could have sworn he had both his arms...Then I look in the sink and there lays the arm.
