    Default Shrimp cast or dismemberment?

    So I got a load of shrimp today. I just found a bit of shrimp, which I don't think is a cast :( casts don't have bits of white goo inside, do they? I'm looking at you, goby.

    A shrimp molt is milkish clear and ghostlike, limp and hollow. A bit of dead shrimp will be solid colored, white to reddish... not unlike a tiny cocktail shrimp.

    Oh no, one of my tiger shrimp got munched then :( and two of the dwarf blacks are awol. Not sure I've ever seen a cocktail shrimp, I decided when I was 3 not to eat anything with a face. I hope the remaining 6+ find a sneaky way to survive, now that someone's obviously got a taste for them.

    Arg, looks like most of the rest went the same way. Expensive snacks.

    Guppies, lampeyes, hillstream loaches, sakura gobies and honey gouramis. I suspect the gobies, none of the others seem particularly bothered by things that move.
