Clown fed chromis to BTA:(

When you think things have stabliziled and you're finally getting a hang of things, your clownfish kills a chromis and feeds it to the BTA

Seriously, this hobby sends me for a loup all the time. I know it's just nature and BTA's have to eat too...but it's shocking to come home and realize your bta is eating one of your fish. Can I expect her to do the same iwth the other two chromis? They've lived together for well over a month....with the only sign of hostility being the female clown nipping at the chromis when they get too close to the BTA.

RIP Green Chromis

I agree, the chromis probably died from other causes.

it's wierd, because although i didn't see it happening, i could tell the BTA was eating something.
And it happened just minutes after i was spent a little time watching the tank.

I think the other chromis will end up the way of the first one.
