I have a coral banded shrimp and he does fine. It's really a 50/50 chance with them. Looks like you got one who is on the naughty side. I would take him back to the store and see if you could exchange. Some are totally reef safe.

Mine killed my yellow watchman goby. Snuck up behind and grabbed his tail and it was to late by the time I got my hand close enough to it to get him to drop him. He was trying to swim just couldn't. He went back to the store

Maybe he molted and that's just his exoskeleton that landed on your coral.

I like banded shrimps and bubble corals. If I had only one choice I would go with the bubble corals.
