Ha, I lol'd at that post. Did you mean the little crab didn't do anything to "deserve it"??? If so that's hilarious, like the shrimp was getting revenge or something.
My Texas Cichlid eats feeder fish that "didn't do anything" either.
If you meant didn't do anything to defend itself it's not really that funny but the way I took it I lol'd. Thats life/nature, or at least the simulation of it in our tanks.
BTW, I saw that video too and did feel sorry for that crab, tha shrimp was VICIOUS!
