Missing Shrimp


i got 6 pepp shrimp, 1 pink tip anemone, 3 curly q anemones, a rock anemone, and 3 striped damsels from swf.com yesterday. this morning all 6 shrimp were missing. all 6
Did my anemone eat them.
i also have 2 gobes, 3 emerald crabs, 2 cleaner clams, 1 porcelain crab, lots of snails and hermitts, and a variety of corals. Any ideas.


I have found that new additions often hide for a while. Shrimp tend to be more noturnal so try looking for them at night. Hope all goes well.


I highly doubt anything you listed ate them. Take a flashlight to your tank tonight and peer around the overhangs on the live rock. They will look like little bats swaying around in there.

pepp. shrimp are the 'ninja shrimp'.
They hide mostly always during the day and only peek out to grab food or something. I have one in my tank and if I didnt know where he hides out, Id think he was eaten 3 months ago.
