Are they the Scarlet Pimpernels of the aquatic world?

I bought 3 amanos 2 / 3 weeks ago and since I added them I've seen them about twice. I like to do a head count periodically to make sure all are accounted for but they are harder to find than a dropped sewing needle. How on earth do you check the welfare of something you rarely see?

I have had one that was given to me for about a year now. He can be pretty camouflaged but usually when I feed sinking food he can be seen stealing wafers or pellets from the fish. You could try larger communal sized bottom feeder food. I have seen a set up using a fishing line; you could stick a slice of blanched cucumber in the tank for a few hours, then pull the leftovers out so they don't rot. Allot of people here get great pictures of all the shrimp at the same time using methods like that.

I hadn't thought of using fishing line for the food. I'll give that a go
