The new shrimp didn't bury himself, he jumped ship. I move the tank and searched the floor. Sure enough, we was behind my desk.
I thought they were supposed to do that. I am guessing the tank was just too small. I am thinking of getting some ghost shrimp for the tank.Greatest Guitar Forum Ever

Aww, that's too bad :( Hopefully your ghost shrimp will do better.10 Gallon FW with Male Betta, 1 male Endler, and 5 Zebra Danios, 100 Gallon with Sevs, Acaras, Parrots and Loaches.

Is this the pretty red shrimp you had. Must be why you said you hadn't seen him since you took his picture. :) Some of the opening in the back of the hoods are too large. I really like the glass lids.

It was a small tank and I had a piece of glass that covered the tank, but I think he must have freaked out when I changed the water. He could have gone out the back of the tank while I was dumping the waste water. 3 days of shrimp was not worth the $9 I paid for him. Plus, I was bawling like a baby when I found him. I just found out I might be getting some baby kribs, so that cheered me up a bit. I am going to see if the Department Head at the Pet store will give me a few ghost shrimp for free. I don't think "jumping out the tank" is covered in the 3 day guarantee, but I am going to mention that I don't have the shrimp anymore.Greatest Guitar Forum Ever

shimp, lobsters and snails, etc. are escape artists. i would recommend an all glass top and when you trim the plastic backing, trim it to fit all the contours of the equipment so there are no gaps. i used to have a blue lobster that found his way out of the tank in a couple hours.><((((º> ><((((º> ><((((º> ><((((º>
