So I bought a vampire shrimp about 6 weeks ago. As soon as I put her in the tank, she disappeared.
She resurfaced last night for the first time ever... but now she is brown in color and hasn't moved more than a few inches that I have seen. She's sort of hiding out in a corner of the big coliseum decoration I have. I crushed up some food very finely, suspended it in water and blew it past her with a turkey baster, but don't think she bothered feeding.
Is there anything I can do for the poor girl? I had given up hope of ever seeing her again, but am worried about her now! That brown color can't be good.
My tank is a 29-gal
, over six months old and there's a pretty decent current in some parts due to the filter, so she ought to be able to feed OK. Any suggestions?
