Very upset today. I had a mating pair of redstripe cleaner shrimp, today after the male shrimp molted I found his head and the velvet damsel is very fat! My damsel also ate all my feather dusters tearing them apart to get to the worm and my hermit crabs. Grrr. I grew my shrimps up to 4" and got emotionally attached to think one was just eaten.
There were only 3 fish in this tank.
The Velvet Damsel,
Blue Angel (obsessed with being cleaned by the shrimp),
Blue Devil Damsel.
Is this normal behaver of a 3" Velvet Damsel? Will other kinds of damsels eat shrimps, feather dusters and hermit crabs too?
