shrimp dissapearance

Been awhile since I posted. I guess things have been going good except.....
Here's what I got:
55g fowlr, 75lbs lr, 120lbs sand, skimmer, heater, 2 mj 1200's, 1 maroon clown, 1 yellow tang, 15 or so hermits, 5 snails.
NO2 - 0
NO3 - 20
pH - 8.4
NH3 - 0
sg 1.021
temp 80F
A few months ago I got a cleaner shrimp. He lasted about a month and then dissapeared. Just one day he was gone without a trace.
Last month I decided to try a camel shrimp. He hid in the rocks for two days. I could see him but he wouldn't come out for anything as far as I could see. Then he dissapeared.
What is going on?

i think it's possible the camel could be hiding, but the cleaner was very sociable and I'm sure he's a goner. thanks for the input!

It could just be hiding in/under a rock. They are not very social shrimp.
