I think we have a murderer in the tank. Two nights, two deaths. No illness or odd behavior from either of the deceased prior to their sudden demise.
Fluval 305 canister
refugium with chaeto
First the Banggai Cardinal - just disappeared overnight, no trace
2nd the Royal Gramma - found on the sand in the morning, being feasted upon by hermits, then finished off by our little Emerald crab

Pair of tank bred True Percs
Green Clown Goby

Red Banded Hi-Fin Goby / Candy Strip Pistol pair
Clowns getting ready to spawn? They seem to be cleaning & prepping the Mini-Jet powerhead as a nesting spot.
Peppermint shrimp - it is a bit aggressive about food. We think it killed off a couple of feather duster worms previously.
I'm away from home right now but my wife will be watching more closely tonight.
