Bamboo shrimp reappeared!!

We put 2 bamboo shrimp in our 29 gallon tank about a month ago. They stayed on top of the heater for like 2 days straight and then disappeared. I thought they both died and were eaten or there bodies were hidden really well because we hadn't seen them since. Until last night when this guy appeared!!

Has anybody else had this happen before? Is it normal for them to only come out once a month? Are they just hiding REALLY well? I had read that they will sit in the same place for a couple days straight but a whole month???

I couldn't believe it when I saw him but maybe the other one is hiding in there somewhere too!

125 gallon tank:
2 Tiger oscars, 1 Electric blue jack dempsey, 1 Jack dempsey, 2 Bala sharks, 1 Firemouth, 1 Salvini, 1 Texas cichlid, 1 Pleco; All juveniles

29 gallon (in the works):
1 Blue ram, 1 Cockatoo cichlid, 1 Powder blue dwarf gourami, 1 Bolivian Ram, 8 Neon tetras, 4 Corydoras, 2 Bamboo shrimp, some ghost shrimp

i kept these a while back,they normally sit on the filter outflo catching bits of
food re entering the tank,they would sometimes come down into the main part
and collect anything floating through the water or picking bits from the gravel,plants.
i had a picture of it on a rock surounded with tiger barbs,like they were having a meeting.
anyhoo,they would sometimes dissapear for a while,MIA,then re appear.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
