Hey guys just took delivery of my peacock mantis shrimp two days ago and I’ve noticed I haven’t seen either smashers on him.. even took some tongs with some shrimp to get a good and nothing, he is 3in long I’m assuming he lost them during a molt .. all I do is wait a few molts and it should grow back is what I’ve Gathered and feed daily

hi,yes they will grow back,careful not to over feed ,looks like a smaller tank :)
What’s considered overfeeding guys ..? feeding him two small cubes of raw shrimp cut up .. everyday and he seems to eat both pieces bc I’m checking for leftovers and don’t see any

hi,what size tank? think i would do either 1 a day or 2 every other day,do you have a skimmer?
I have a 15g flex I do not have a skimmer yet and Im planning on getting the fluval ps2 mini skimmer and feeding him every other day 1 to 2 pieces right

Through molting, most crab and shrimp repair themselves. It nay start as a smaller size but quickly grows to normal shape
