One of my cleaner shrimp keeps pestering my new additions. I added 3 turbo snails a few weeks back. One of them happen to have a hole on it's shell. The hole was just big enough for the shrimp to put its legs in there to pull the flesh out and eat it. The snail was actively eating at the LFS
and died soon after the shrimp got to it.
Well, today I added a mandarin that has a small cut. Immediately after adding it to the tank the shrimp tasted blood and went straight for the mandarin. It started picking at the mandarin. It wasn't cleaning it because I can see the mandarin flinch when the shrimp dug deep. The mandarin is now in the sump recovering.
Anyone ever see a shrimp be this opportunistic of a feeder?
