banded shrimp.. :@

So I come home, and I find my banded shrimp messing with my sailfin blenny. I was not to happy about this. the Blenny seemed like he couldn't even really move till i stuck a net in the to scare the shrimp. Is this usual?

Sad to say but yes. I had to get rid of my CBS after it started attacking my fish. A friend loss a couple of fish to the shrimp.

My CBS is very docile. He catches Shrimp when the tank is fed and leaves the fish alone. They do sometimes get aggressive though.
