No, when I feed them the live brine shrimp the shrimp just swim around. The fish will just eat them with no competition since there are so many of shrimp. The shrimp usually stay in the tank for maybe 2-3 hours before all have been eaten or sucked up by the filter. When I feed them the pellets, the pellets sink to the bottom and they just eat them off of the sand. The fish have left the hermit crabs alone now. The last I saw of the emerald crab he was being feed to the anemone by the clown fish. Still very aggravating, hopefully if I add another emerald crab he will not come to the same fate. The guy at the LFS said he has never heard of this happening before. What is even more confusing is that every where I read the yellow tail blue damsel is supposed to be one of the least aggressive damsels. This is sooooooo not the case in my tank. Those three rule all the others even though they are the smallest. They are the only ones that will usually chase the other fish.

Yes this Darwinism in my tank is very annoying. Watching my fish play tug-o-war with my crab. Then i heard the crack as he was split in half. All the while he was still fighting back for his life.
