Hi all! Nice to be back, but sorry to be back because of an aquarium problem.
OK, my 28 gallon tank is now all set up and looking pretty with all the fish/corals transferred from my small 12 gallon tank.
I have these fish:
1 - maroon clown
1 - six line wrasse
1 - yellow watchman goby
1 - bi color blenny
I have one emerald crab
small blue hermit crabs
Awhile back, I was having issues with aptasia so I put three small peppermint shrimp in the tank. I saw them from time to time for a week and then...poof...gone!
I got a medium cleaner shrimp and it is thriving.
I found a small beautiful pair of golden coral banded shrimp - I saw them for about 2 days and now...they are gone, too. Poof!
I tried to put a dwarf angel in the tank...it disappeared.
Same thing for a yellow jaw goby.
What's happening? I have a killer and I can't figure who! HELP!!! Ohh, FYI - When I set up this tank with new live rock, it came with a LOT of long legged white bristle stars whose legs come out of the rocks at night. Could they be killing everything? From everything I've read, it seems unlikely.
Thanks for your advice & help!
