Lobsters can be aggressive and if they can catch something it's fair game. I've seen that lobster in a video about the Great Barrier Reef...man do they get huge.

Wouldn't want him killing any other fish, and losing money and life

Yeah, I've read a few posts about lobsters eating anything that they can get a hold of, and cardinals tend to "hover" in one place- easy prey. I would take the lobster out and take back to the LFS.

Sorry it didn't work out and you had to lose a fish in the process...Getting an invert to replace him or a fish to replace the cardinal?
