I know what you're thinking... I am 90% sure it's not a molt. I've seen a molt and this is different.
I did a 10% water change yesterday. Today, I finally added my Perc clown that was in QT
for over 3 weeks. Now, a few hours later, my Nass snails are attached to the tail of my (former) cleaner shrimp, seemingly removing its insides. The shrimp is motionless.
What could have caused my shrimp to die? I know the snails are just scavengers are are just cleaning up.
Also, I have seen a few empty snail shells lying around. Is it possible I have some kind of crab I have never seen terrorizing my inverts? Ugh.
I am really bummed. My first loss.
