I know all this now. I did move that piece of driftwood a bit when I cleaned and then saw my poor Bamboo shrimp holding on for dear life to a leaf on the driftwood trying to get in the current. I was thinking of moving it, and the next day, he had "jumped" out. I felt so sad about it, and now will wait till I have the correct set up in my tank I'm in process of upgrading.
Poor little guy. I see them at the petstore picking food from the subtrate, and when they do that it can indicate they are starving and not getting enough food.
