So I bought a blood shrimp from lee when I got my Helfrichi. Since that day... I haven't seen him again. Any suggestions to make him appear? lol

Maybe. I was thinking more along the lines of putting some food in a net or jar and setting it on your aquarium Wink

They are habitually shy. I would not buy another one.

Get yourself a red flashlight and look for it at night. It will be out and about.


They LOVE brine shrimp from an eye dropper, or will steal food from LPS (although not as bad as skunk cleaners).

I saw him in the back of the tank (in a reflection) for about 10 seconds the other night when I was feeding the fish. I'm just glad he's still alive lol Very Happy

+1, when i had one a few years back, he never came out for months. Slowly but surely my bloodshrimp would start coming out during the day. I swear my fish recognize me. He would always come out when i was by the tank, but as soon as friends/roomies would try to look, he would hide again. Best of luck, i stay away from shrimp for the reason stated by Josh. They make target feeding a PITA. But i miss my cleaner shrimp and i'm starting to get the itch for them again.

He is slowly coming out more and more. He took a liking to a cave in the back of my tank, and he does come out for feeding time! He's definitely and aggressive eater!

He's so good looking! Puts the red emerald crab and the red cap monti to shame! He comes out every time I feed, and he attempts to molest me when I am trying to glue corals... lol Very Happy
