hubby and i bought a randall's pistol shrimp and a tangaroa goby about a month ago... the shrimp was soooo tiny, that when he went into the tank, i didn't expect to see him again for ages, if ever....
(this is him in a turbo snail-shell he hid in during transport from lfs, and my fingers, not hubby's, lol, for perspective)


well last night, i was enjoying my tank and saw a puff of sand where there's usually not much current.... so i went for a closer look... and sure enough, it's my little shrimp, excavating tunnels under a piece of l-r front/center of my tank! woooohooooo! i'm still grinning @ finding him alive and well, lol

what's the longest one of your tank residents has been MIA only to be found safe and sound and happy?

Grumpy the yellow watchman goby disappeared day 1 of being added to my nano. six months later I found him in the back chamber. He is not yellow anymore, more of a grey :)

I also added a rbta and it disappeared day also. Four months later I found it in my sump in the basement. Not sure how it survived with no light for that long.

I had a ricordea that went MIA for 2-3 weeks, before I found him attached to a rock at the back of the tank (to my disappointment and joy lol).
