Then I looked closer and saw this...

He has molted about every 4-6 weeks but not usually right out in the open like that. It's usually hidden so I see him moving about before I notice the shed. I thought for a minute that I lost my shrimpy! But I didn't he is alive and well and as ornery as ever!!

Do you target feed your cleaner? I rarely call stuff cute, but melt some frozen mysis in a cup of tank water, and suck that up with a turkey baster and just gently squeeze a little into the tank. My cleaner will come right up to the tip invert itself and eat the goo coming out like I'm bottle feeding a kitten or something. My pep and my cowri will do this as well.

You can also hand them a thawed out krill, they will jump right on your hand to get it. I have the ones at my lfs well trained funny and they sell very well when you show folks that!

I've never target fed him but he loves brine shrimp. He likes to clean my hands while I clean the tank too!

Reminds me of my fiddler crab that would climb on top of the tank and wave his claw to by fed.

and snippet of food that you can hold in your fingers and give to him would work, its pretty neat to do.

I'll have to try that. I like to watch all the little legs he has underneath when he is swimming.

Once they get used to it all your little shrimp will flock to your hand when it is feeding time.

I target feed some of the larger corals at work will krill and very long tweezers, The shrimp would always steal the first krill so I just started handing them each one first and then feed the corals. Some Clowns will also grab them and feed them to their host.
cyclop-eeze thawed out in a little tank water is a great food for the small corals, you use an eyedropper to target feed them, no more than 1-2 times a week though. Feeding like that is not necessary but sure helps out with the growth!
