Of course, ghost shrimp are normally sold as feeders anyway, so consider them less a pet and more of a snack.
I did check them and all is well. I check them often and also change water often. Today I did a 75% water change just in case. I usually do 60% every 4-5 days. I clean the gravel each time as well. At least the part that I can get to around the live plants. Right now they are pretty thick so... only gravel around the front and back corner is deep cleaned weekly. I know water parameters can change quickly but I check mine so often it would be hard to believe anything snuck by me in that area.
The background was just curled the tiniest bit on the top corner so I suppose he could have just jumped out and fell right in the "wrong spot" or right spot depending on ones view. I just feel bad not knowing what happened as I can't easily prevent it from happening again.
