my Singapore Wood Shrimp died yesterday.
i am not sure why.
maybe from starvation.
he also was 4 inches long when i got him so he may have been pretty old.
i am not sure about their life expectancy.
i am very sad.
he did look like he died very peacefully, he was in a bed of my plants.

yeah bamboo shrimp.
i was told at my good lfs store that he'd be fine in my 10g
when i did some research i found out that they do much better in larger tanks.
so my thoughts are that he may have died from starvation.
but he was doing really well.
he had molted and wasn't picking food off the bottom of tank except for once or twice.
and my tank levels are all good.
so i don't know
