Thank you for the link. It's been useful:]

Yeah clintwood (my pistol shrimps name :P) had two claws. They were both roughly around the same size and like I said in the previous posts, he started acting really weird just flicking his tail to push himself to the top of the tank and just let himself fall. He's fine now. My sleeper goby took clintwoods old rock while he burrowed into a new one and now he has what looks like a small claw or 2 arms together. I kept the severed claw in an empty flake container :P

Did you see it cut it off? If not, they occasionally have problems molting and will lose limbs. Keeping iodine, trace elements high lessens the chances of this happening.

Yeah I saw it cut it off. He was holding his right claw with his left. Before I knew it, he walked on with the claw on the ground

Perhaps your shrimp suffers with a rare neurological condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) lol.

It's a real disorder appearantly, a man who had it hated his own perfectly good right leg and wanted it amputated, doctors wouldn't approve the surgery so he took matters into his own hands! Yikes!
