Ghost shrimp burrowing problem
In my 5 gallon marine aquarium, I have five or six ghost shrimp (or glass shrimp) (they're classified as fresh water, but I found them in brackish/salt water), but the only problem is that they love to burrow, and bury themselves. Originally I didn't see this as much of a problem, but when they don't show up, I'm starting to wonder if they burrowed and died.
I found one of them died by finding a piece of the tail against the filter intake, so now I'm doing a search for the rest of it.
Does anyone have much trouble with animals which bury themselves like this, and know a good way to find them, other than digging through every inch of sand in the aquarium?
