I have a yellow tail damsel that I got as my first fish. Tank is still fairly new but I wanted to get a couple fish. A had 4 peppermint shrimp that all disappeared. I watched the last one go. The damsel killed him. And then my nassarius snails sucked the shrimp colorless. Is that common for a damsel to be this aggressive? It's a 55 gallon tank with a purple zoa button polyp, colt coral, carnation coral, 2 damsels, and a handful of snails. There used to be shrimp. . What should I do with this menace?

Damsels are one of the most aggressive fish you can possibly find. Of you want to add anything else, I would get rid of both.

Agrees, this is often why its best to fishless cycle and avoid damsels. For the most part they are pure evil.

Good luck catching them.
