    I had a honey gourami that was a shrimp vacuum. I hear that isn't typical but he sure wouldn't let me keep them lol

    They are master hiders. Do you have a lot of plants or ornaments that could conceal them? I have a good 20+ ghost shrimp in my 36 gallon tank and I can only see maybe 5, at any given moment
