O.O!! Sorry to hear about John Locke finding himself a snack. Looks like somebody's gonna need some exercise. Good luck with the rest the shrimp.

Well... now call me confused. I just saw a shrimp in his section. He only had one. lol. So either he ate a whole bunch of cucumber---- or maybe one of the snails from another section jumped into his somehow.
I had already flared him and cupped him in some water with epsom salts and his poop was yellow instead of the normal brown.

I probably wont buy any more ghost shrimps - at least for awhile. The gravel in my larger tanks is either natural or white so its really hard to see these guys - so I have no idea if they're missing or not, unless they happen to show up on a rare occasion!
Needless to say John Locke is going to be fasted for at least a day!

I really hope it was the cucumber if it was not a shrimp. Snail does not sound like it would be fun to pass (he was looking very round Oo).

Yeah, sounds like it's diet (fast) time for him, lol. I don't think I've seen a belly on a fish like that before.
