Well they are agressive fish and not reef safe. They shouldnt be put in with watchmans in the first place. How big is the tank?

Sorry for your loss,,really wish you would have posted and asked "before" the purchase of what i call Mr. PITA fish!!
Had one for a few years and finally got rid of him...He killed 3 fish ,,he was great for 2+ years then just snapped..Last victim above

Only reason they are considered not reef safe is inverts,,they do not eat corals

My Picasso trigger only pics on some fish. I've put in about 3 fish and he does not bother them. Be was a small chromis that is his friend now, but I put in a small Toby puffer and the Picasso picks on him.
