When I feed my corals they come over and steal the food. Mine are very brave. If I stick my hand in the tank to clean etc. several jump on my hand even while I scrub the tank.

I wish mine was that brave I'm lucky to even catch a glimpse of him during the day. I can see why that would be frustrating. My peppermints are quick to get the food as well, it’s amazing how such a tiny creature can consume so much food!

My two shrimp just mess around (jokingly) with the Anemone. Tricking him to think he has caught something. I think they both just do it and sit back and laugh at the anemone.

Can you take footage of this happening with a digital camera, etc? That would be great to see.
