I don't think the shrimp could do that. It would have to hold the larger/strongerangel long enough to do that kind of damage.

Please post a pic asap.

I think it might have been the Coral Banded Shrimp. I had one and he or she was extremely mean. Even caught one of my fish by the tail with his claw and the fish had to pull away from it. I will never have another Coral Banded Shrimp in my tanks.

Sincerely,

Mary

my other angel fish has been dead for a few weeks. this just happened a week ago today, last friday.
i think the shrimp did it too, she is extremely fast and probably wouldn't have to hold him that long to do that kind of damage.
i cant get a good pic of him. he wont stay still and my camera isnt that great. he stays in the rocks a good amount of time, but that is his normal behavior. i will try, thou.
i am planning on getting rid of my shrimp.

Is it able to eat anything? If not, it will die of starvation in another week and your clean up crew will get to work on it.
If possible you should try to move it to a QT tank and treat with antibiotics for secondary infections that may start.

im not sure if he is able to eat anything. i am hoping that he is. my LFS told me that if he could eat, he would be fine. he comes out at feeding time, and he tried so hard to get food. he could possibly be getting food from elsewhere in the tank, small pieces that have stuck to my live rock. i dont know. its been a little over a week and his behavior hasnt changed any.

Dang that looks bad - to bad, looked like a nice fish. Can't imagine it will make it through that - I agree if at all possible get him out of your tank and into a QT tank.

yea, it looks awful. i know. i dont have a QT tank, not unless maybe i get him ((if i can catch him....)) and take him to my LFS. im sure he 'd hold on to him for as long as i need him to. but catching the fish is the problem, and i am not tearing down a 70 gallon tank to get one fish.
