liek the others said, it will grow back over time.... I have heard that shrimp can sometimes die during a molt is the shell gets stuck on..

faerykisses, I have had shrimp grow back smaller legs/arms but have yet to see a CBS grow back the largest arm/claw if broken off. I hope you guys are right though, I’ll report back in about 4 months with an update on the progress.

So the general consesus is that this is not my fault? I think that's what I'm getting. Just making sure that this isn't the syptom of some deficiency of something.

It's funny, my fire shrimp goes out for a swim and the damsels love to pick at his antenna, but my cleaner (who I still haven't seen clean, by the way), they just leave him alone...You suppose they know he is their cleaning (on strike right now) friend?

**UPDATE** Well it’s been a little over two weeks since my CBS lost it’s arm and it molted last week (after just molting a week before that) and had a small ¼” nub where it’s arm was. I was kind of shocked but was hopeful.

Last night it molted again (3 times in the last month!) and now its full arm is back working perfectly although it’s slightly smaller then the other arm!

This is the 2nd CBS I have owned and I have seen regeneration with other smaller legs but wouldn’t have thought that it could regenerate such a huge part of its body in such a short time span.

I hope the rest of you armless shrimp have similar results
