    Missing?

    If the shrimp died someone might have eaten it? maybe the crabs?

    Maybe it molted? Most of the times when shrimps shed there skin they hide until the exo-skeleton has hardened. On the other hand that is also the time they are most vulnerable to be eaten as the skin is very soft and easy to get through.
    What other live stock you got?
