Bye Bye Peppermint Shrimp? Why?

My Cinnamon Clown and Purple Pseudochromis have eaten my newly bought peppermint shrimp. Why?

What led you to that conclusion. Did you witness the murder? You may have seen them mucching on the shrimps old skeleton after it molted. They'll molt and then lay low for awhile.

Cin clowns are among the most teritorrial and agressive. Chromis not much better. If your tank is small, there just may not be enough room for everyone to feel 'safe' while they learn how to co exist.
Sorry bout your dead shrimp though, I know the feeling.

GL!
