View Full Version : Jumping Pepermint Shrimp

Has anyone had the experience of a Pepermint Shrimp jumping out of the tank?

I woke up this morning and one of my Pepermint Shrimp was wiggling on the ledge in front of my tank. I do not know how long he/she was there, but when I picked it up, it seemed rather dry. When I put it in the tank, it floated for a second and then scooted away, it seemed fine after that, but I will have to check later today.

How long can Shrimp live out of the water? [/b]

That does not really surprise me. I found a hermit crab in the middle of my family room once.
