coral banded shrimp capabilities

I purchased a cbs the same day as my red fairy anthias one night goes by and he's on floor with what looks like a whole in his head. I like the cbs but can he kill my gold stripe maroon or engineer goby. What's the rule of thumb here. Thanks ahead of time

Of the cleaner shrimp varieties, the CBS is one of the more aggressive, but I think it is far more likely that the anthias died of disease, shock, or stress (most likely incurred before your purchase and not your fault) and in the night, something took a bite. This phenomenon is how bristle worms got a bad reputation. Be on the lookout for aggressive behavior nonetheless. But right off hand, I'd be very reluctant to blame the shrimp, personally.

Thanks for the input guys, he hasn't bothered anyone at all not even the pep shrimp I have. Seems like almost everything from this shop dies -_- def keeping him. Very interesting to watch clean up crew make nothing of the fish corps. They only left a spine
