Cleaner shrimp in trouble

Hi, my flatmate has a marine tank with 2 cleaner shrimp in it and a yellow tang and 2 clown fish. Last night we noticed that the shrimps tentacles were a lot shorter than usual and thought we saw the yellow tang snap at one of them. Today one of the shrimp has only got tiny tentacle stumps left. Do you think the fish are attacking them?

I used to have a coral angel and he munched my cleaner shrimps antennas all the time. Ur tang could be doing that too. As far as for the shrimp health, mine just molts once every 2 or 3 weeks and his attennas turn long again.

Good prognosis. The antenna will grow back.

Thanks guys! I'm happy that the shrimp will be ok. Thought we'd have to send them back. I'm also hoping the fish will eventually get used to them and let them do their cleaning duties
