Scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp dissapeared or most likeley... dead :'(

Seen my goby swimming round with a shrimp skins head with the tentacles still on so i figured it was just the shrimp shed its skin and went of into hiding for a while and my goby likes to gather uo everything he can find. So i thought nothing of it untill today were the shrimp has still not shown its face, hes normally out and about everywhere and jumps on my hand when i put it in. He was getting alot bigger aswell is he dead or is this just an elongated hide because he needs more time for a bigger shell

Hmmmmmm so nothing that would kill him. I ask cause I hade 2 fire shrimp and one disappeared one day and I realized my emerald crab killed him. But I guess if your worried you could just lift up some rocks and see where he is

Sorry about your loss. It was probably the Goby who ate it. I believe that they have a history of waiting ornamental shrimps.

That probably isn't a good idea, because your Coral Banded Shrimp would kill your Fire Shrimp

The Golden coral banded is different than the Coral banded.Not as aggressive.
