Peppermint shrimp mystery death
Hi AA, I don't know which category to post is in, so here it is. This morning, I found my one peppermint shrimp dead in my 3G pico :'( . I have no idea how he could have died. My small hermit is very peaceful, and has been around the same spot for a couple day, so I know he isn't a suspect. All my corals are healthy, and my other cleaner shrimp is happy as well. My params are fine, but there is some nitrate (~15.) Also, he was completely intact, with no indication of an attack. One last thing: I've had him for two weeks, and he's been completely happy the whole time.
My question is, how could he have died? Also, if I get another peppermint, will it be ok? Thanks for any help!
