I've got a fluval spec and 3 of my amano shrimp jumped out and crawled over 20 feet!! I was shocked. 2 of them hid really really well as in I couldn't find them for over 2 weeks. I thought Beastie ate them. I had to take that last 2 out and put them in a 1.5 gallon tank that I got today (super annoying) cuz Beastie was going crazy chasing them I was afraid he would get hurt.

x_x how frustrating. I thought my boy ate one of the shrimps in my tank but found out it was a shell. Sardine was looking at it too wondering why the shrimp was not moving. XD

oh yah I didn't know about shrimp molting. i thought Beastie ate a couple of them too until I found them later in the filter area of my tank. No clue how they got in there.

Keep checking the bottom of your tank for evidence of molting. that means they are still alive. they are very good hiders! Also check your floors lol. they seem to crawl towards light sources at night. I'm sure they are still alive.

I lost an amano last night. Crawled all the way into my kitchen. Im waiting for my lid to come in and now have my old 5.5gal lid across the tank and plastic wrap closing off the rest to keep the pesky shrimp in the tank.

Just did a water change. Looked in the bucket and guess what I found! LOL! That sucker must've been living in the filter area of my tank for weeks! Into the shrimp tank it went and it's swimming like crazy. Must be happy not being in a cramped space anymore.
