    camel shrimp

    i don't know how he even got in there....there is no holes big enough that it could have squeezed through.

    that's pretty cool, but I wouldn't put him back in the reef. They can munch on some corals. I haven't had a camel shrimp in soo long I don't even remember why they aren't reef safe...but I'm pretty sure they aren't

    they hop out of the water when stressed like fish do, maybe a fish chased him all the way up the edge and he hopped out of the water and fell in

    thats cool, he gets like unlimited supply of food there lol

    "It usually tolerates other shrimp, but may nip at colonial anemones, disc anemones, and soft leather corals. It generally leaves bubble coral and stinging anemones alone"
