So I woke up this morning to my first loss since starting up this tank. I found my fire shrimp dead and stuck to the filter intake and all sucked into it. Gross! His tentacles are sticking out. I found his "shell" on in the tank too. I assume he moulted. My question is do you think a bad moult killed him and he then got sucked into the intake, or do you think he got sucked up and died because of it? I don't have a sponge over the intake. And how can I scrape his body off of it without barfing?

Edit. Bob is alive. I've read in the past about people confusing a moult for a dead shrimp but I was certain he was a goner. I had no idea they shed their legs and tentacles too. Well everyone is in fact alive and well.

Lol nope. I didn't clean it off the intake. I think something must've eaten it.
