Unhappy Jumping Ghostshrimp!

Ok guys bad news I like to rearange the plants in my tank cut away bad leaves roots sift out some of the poop and old food.
So I was like.
"ok ghost shrimp are see through! I better take them out so I dont hurt them!"
so I removed all for of my ghostys: hambre, taco, paco, and pequeño
(named from largest to smallest sorry spanish 1 buddies named them)
any ways I had them in my bucket that I use for big water changes along with plants that floated on top. Any ways cleaned the tank rearanged the plants look in my bucket and im MISSING A GHOST SHRIMP
i looked every where my mom eventualy told me to go outside because I was freeking out cause I couldnt find my poor hambre.
eventualy I found him under a box that he some how got under
Please! Be careful with your ghost shrimp!

Naughty shrimp. Usually it's the bettas that give people heart attack moments.

jumping shrimp

the jumping is actually the natural prey response for shrimp. they flick their tails when threatened and can really move! Watch out for this when netting or transferring.
