I have discovered a shrimp that has gone mad... :shocked:

It is constantly jumping on other shrimps for no reason (not for food for sure), and it picks on every shrimp regardless of sex or size. In fact, it behaves like playing a first-player-shooter game where you shoot everyone you see...

Any idea what happened? :)

No moult shell that I see, but maybe eaten or hidden in some corner..

It does look like a male.. but I don't like how it is being a public nuisance >( .. any way to topple the throne and cause a 'regime change' for the good of the common folks?

:D a horny shrimp :D ... maybe

Tha'ts new to me. If all other shrimps look ok, so the colors are bright, I wouldn't matter to have such specimen. Let him do. But he could also be the first sign of any bad conditions because he is extra sensitive. Observe the other shrimps to make sure everything is ok.
