Sounds like shrimponic possesion. Hang some garlic near the tank and hope for the best! (Just in case .... I am joking a the garlic)

My cleaners are also a little PMSey from time to time When I added some Nassarius snails for the first time they thought it was time to chow down ! I caught one of them picking up a snail and dragging it up into it's crevice to have lunch !! About 2 days later there were 3-4 empty Nassarius snail shells lying around the shrimp home Since then they've been behaving pretty much as expected though .....

Yeah, well mine is a fairy! I think he wears a tu-tu after lights out. He will only clean my yellow tang (found a sugah-daddy). Other fish will swim up and offer thier services but he ignores them.
