I came home today to what looks like a pink shrimp getting mauled by almost all of the amano/ghost shrimp in my 10g tank. The pink looking shrimp is around the same size as the amano/ghost shrimp in the tank, but I couldn't tell you which species it might have been.
Was this shrimp already on its last legs and the opportunistic feeding amano shrimp and ghost shrimp decided to help it along? Do either of those two species of shrimp turn pinkish while molting, and perhaps was caught in that vulnerable state by the others?
I've seen milky white ghost shrimp that were either molting or almost dead before, but never a pink looking one.
One thing, when you have an aquarium, you actually pick up the habits/movements of your pets, I had a big female Amano shrimp and a few days before she died, one could pick up that something wasnt right, was always eating doing alot of swimming then before I lost her, the movements became slower, eating became less, till I saw my mollies mauling her
