Visibility of Ghost Shrimp
Do you ever see your ghost shrimp swimming around or whatnot? Mine have been hiding out since the first night I had them in the tank. When I first put them in (Wednesday afternoon), they were pretty visible, but they've been hiding out ever since. Should I be concerned...or just wait longer for them to get comfortable?

Shrimp are very good hiders. I have 6 amanos that are 1-2" long in a 10g and I very rarely count up to six. Maybe once per week, out of all the time I spend looking at the tank, I'll be able to see all six at the same time.My AC Fish Gallery:

Thanks! I was able to count two earlier this morning. I haven't seen them since though. I'll keep checking.
