Shrimp and Anemone Problem?

This just started 2 days ago. I have a giant carpet anemone and 2 cleaner shrimps. The shrimps started going on the anemone at night when i feed the anemone and picking everything off. After that one stays right around the mouth of the anemone for a few hours. Do I have to worry about the shrimp getting eaten?

Thanks

Harry

Maybe...why do you have them is your tank is 2 days old? Your tank hasn't cycled? They will most likely die.

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

My tank has already been through the cycling period and the water conditions are where they need to be. It has been running for about 6 months now.

Tank is still a little young to be adding a nem but good luck. I dont see a porb with it other than just making sure that your nem is eating something and the shrimp arent stealing it all or trying to eat the nem.
