    Unfortunately we can't dictate where shrimp or fish hangout at in our tanks. It may come out once it get comfortable in your tank so don't loose hope.

    They'll come out eventually...they like to be seen. Watch out for the coral banded picking on the cleaner shrimp.

    Try feeding them to coax them out more often
