Blue Velvet Shrimp Lost?

    I ordered 2 Blue Velvet shrimp and when they arrived I should have read the shipping sizes of them. They were maybe 1/2" if that. That worried me due to having a mostly peaceful tank but fish that could possibly eat them. Since being in I only have seen the one once, hidden in some plants. I do have many hiding spots in the tank. Are these shrimp hiders or are my two most likely fish food?

    They'll probably hid till they gain some size and getting more might help with them feeling more comfortable in the open. They could also go nocturnal and only venture out at night. If you worried about them being fish food you could put them in one of those breeder nets and give them something to hide in like a small clay pot till the get larger.
