I’m still not sure what happened but I came from from work and he was unfortunately dead. The 3 ghost shrimp in the tank all seem to be fine so I’m still not sure what happened and why it happened. I’m planning on doing a water change but if anyone know anything please let me know because I’d hate for this to happen again edit he is in fact not dead, I saw him swim up for air before he went back down to sleep
