    Hey guys after Qting my Firefish and Randells Gobie i added them to my display, after 5-10 minutes my Candycane that i already had for 1-2 months came out and started to spaz out, and wont go back in its hole. should i be worried the gobie hasnt dug any hole yet and its out on the sandbed doing its thing.

    What should i do? i have all my vortech mp10 off because i dont want the shrimp to shread apart!

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Just throwing it out there:

    Do you have a plastic container you can punch holes in and carefully get the shrimp in there until the fish finds a spot.

    You're only other choice is to wait and see what happens.

    Honestly I have never heard of this or seen a shrimp spaz like that, weird.

    Good Luck
