    I have Amano shrimp and I am just wonder if I should be concerned about them being behind the sponge filter. They're crawling behind my two corner filters and they look almost stuck but if they crawled in there they must be able to get out. Just want to make sure if anyone thinks they're fine or that I should move the corner filters out alittle more.

    Nah, they got there, they can get out. Why leave a safe corner that's filled with food?

    Can't hurt to monitor them though. If they are in distress, or one dies, you will need to move the sponge. You may eventually decide you want to see them more often, too. You're not without cause to move the sponge if you want, or feel it necessary.
