Armless Coral Branded Shrimp

Woke up two mornings ago to find one of the coral branded shrimp had lost an arm. Then woke up yesterday to find he lost his other arm. Is this typical or is something wrong in the tank? The other coral branded guy is fine as are the fire shrimp(5) and the peppermint shrimp(4) and the cleaner shrimp(1) Woah thats alot of shrimps!

Other inhabitants include: mandarin gobi, coral beauty, 2 yellow tail damsels, 1 blue damsel and 3 clowns.

Thanks.

-Dan

Did you purchase the CBS as a mated pair? If not, they likely did it to easch other. There are many ways your shrimp might lose it's claws in your tank, if it isn't predation, they will grow back, probably have some small ones next time it molts.

No they aren't a mated pair, or i don't think so. I'll be on the lookout for them fighting.

thanks.
