this morning i woke up to a clear white shrimp in my tank, it kinda sorta looks alive, but ive never seen it before, it look like another peppermint shrimp or a cleaner shrimp, but without color. I have a 10g nano, and the only other shrimp is a peppermint shrimp, which i can see under my LR. does anybody know what this is??

Looks like the shell left over as a molt. Was it moving independently of the current?

(And the only reason I say this is becuase I had one that looked just the same...)

It's definately just a shell from molting, crabs and shrimp molt periodically. It freaked me out a little the first time I saw one, too!!! :eek:
