Ok, it's been 2 wks and no shrimp. Nothing at all. I did water changes and searched for bodies. I've searched each night. I looked all around the outside in case they leapt out. And still nothing. I'm wondering if I have built a small Bermuda Triangle in my reef. I found an aptasia on a rock in back and may need to buy 2 more shrimp, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea. BTW, I have no fish in my 20 gal. Thanks for your help.

How did you acclimate them? IME, shrimp can be very sensitive to any change in water quality - even for the better. They may have passed and the CUC took care of them.

Possibly, but they had been doing fine for 2 wks before they disappeared. I drip acclimated them for 1 1/2 hrs when I added them. I do weekly water changes and test the water each week always tests good. They did take care of the aptasia I could see at the time. If they did both die, could the CUC have decimated them so quickly? And without a trace? I have 10 blue leg hermits and 20 or so snails for a CUC.
