My Star Ate My Anemone!!

I thought you might all find this interesting. I HAD a little condy anemone that was very small, and it had shrank up inside itself, like anemones do, in the corner. Next thing I know is the Chocalte chip star is on top of it and had it 1/2 eaten. It was too late to stop it. It took the star about 2 days to fully eat it. Hes about done now. Oh well. Anybody ever hear of this happening?

CC Stars eat just about anything they can park on.. They are more of a pest to the tank than anything.. I had one that i got when my tank was just started and I gave it away the same day.. I wouldnt trust the thing for the life of me..

I did not know that. Is this the general consensus about the CC star?

No idea, he was up against the glass and you could see the shrimp being eaten. It was a pair, and I took the remaining shrimp and put him in my 125.
