    So I've had my Amano shrimp for a while now. About 2-3 weeks? After the first week they started adventuring and hanging out in the open. I have to do daily water changes (cycling) and I added some driftwood so they went back into hiding and have been hiding about a week. Only one has been brave enough to come back out. I don't know how long I should wait before deciding the shrimp must be dead and digging around to find them. I can't really tell via water parameters because as I said, still cycling so I have daily spikes anyways. Should I just leave it be or should I search for them?

    I would look under the driftwood first. I have had them and not seen them for weeks. Maybe if you drop a piece of an algae wafer they might come out to take it and scurry off with it.
