    Default Life span of a Peppermint Shrimp?

    Anyone have an idea of how long a peppermint shrimp lives? I've had mine for about 5-6 months now~no telling how long the previous owner had her~but she died some time during the night~I saw her yesterday morning out en about during feeding time~but she wasn't as vigorous as usual.

    My emerald crab also died a couple of days ago~two days after I got her~I'm hoping nothings going on in my tank~I've done nothing different.

    It's not molt this I know for sure.

    I know I have had one for at least a year, because it somehow got in the sump/refuguim.The others I dont know they kind of just dissappear

    Ya think a large hungry Bristle worm would have killed her?

    I don't recall but I do know that their use to be a species spotlight on them, I tried to find it but couldn't. Maybe Jim knows where it's hiding!!
    Does water always taste like salt and poo????
