Actually, mine is a beauty. I'll try and catch her out to get a good pick. Nice stripe pattern .
They don't all get that big, like I said the other is still about 5". Here is where I got my sea monster and a pic of the species.

I'd love to see both of them when you do. I believe I have the second. It's a shame he'll only get to be eight inches.. but then I guess he'll scare the visitors less. I already get "What IS that?!". I'm just trying to refrain from naming him Cthulhu. Poor guy gets teased enough.. not to mention the one time a visitor saw him eat

Pfft. Elegant is more like it.

As a minor update, the star realized mr. shrimpy was not going to fit in his mouth no matter what he did, and gave up. He's now sulking in a cave on the other side of the aquarium. I gave him some krill, but he let the hermits have it. Oh well, at least they're happy..

Oh ya, there was an original subject here.
Sorry for the loss, that is strange.

I'm feeling better about it now, knowing that I picked a healthy specimen, acclimated as best I could, researched the purchase beforehand, and did my best to create a good home for them.

I guess for now it's just watch and wait to see what happens. With any luck, it was the other shrimp that did it, and there won't be any more deaths.

On the brighter side, the Tang let him stay on for about a second this time before freaking out, and the Shrimp is getting pretty good at landing safely when it does happen.
