Sorry to hear about your firefish. :-(

How did you acclimate him to the tank? Any other tank mates that could have picked on him?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If there was any aggression from the shrimp and he did any damage to the fish I wouldnt doubt it. Plus the fish was new to the tank and probably wasnt adjusted yet and then he gets picked on. Not a good start in a new tank. My firefish is still super skittish around me and its been months and months lol.

Just guessing by the way, theres really no way to know for certain what happened other than the firefish didnt make it. :-(

Sorry about your loss. How long was he at the lfs before you got him? If it wasn't a long time it could have just been super stressed from repeat acclamations.
