I bought a peppermint shrimp yesterday and today he is gone nowhere to be found even at night and feedings i cant find him i was wondering who could have killed him. I have 3 green chromis small 1-2 inches. and i yellowtail damsel 2 inches some small hermits and snails and thats it. R either of those fish known as shrimps killers.

I have no idea about marine tanks...or what your setup is..but in my fw tank i used to have shrimp sucked up the filter (before i got a sponge).. or maybe he is just hiding? i dont know..:hmm3grin2orange:

I have heard stories of pep. mint shrimp hiding for extended periods of time. I have a budy who kept buying them to control aiptasia, and they kept disappearing. One day he re-scaped his tank, and he found 8 of them hiding under the rock work.
