my cleaner shrimp and my tangs

This is wierd, but everything was doing ok with my cleaner shrimp and my tangs, for 6 months. A month ago, I got my cleaner shrimp companion, and they were happy for a week. One day my oldest cleaner shrimp didnt come out to the rocks and I thought it was molting, but its been a month and I know it is not in the tank anymore. I was wondering what would happened to it as I dont have any carnivorous fish. A litte bit after it deasaparence, in the morning I found my new cleaner shrimp without any of its antenas. Yester I saw one of my yellow tangs bitting it on the little antenas... Now I know what happened with my other cleaner shrimp. Thats sad.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh sorry for the delay. I have 2 yellow tangs, one blue tang, one sailfin tang and 2 foxface rabbitfish. Bad news. Yesterday, I saw my clown fish female eating my other cleaner shrimp. When I saw her bitting the cleaner shrimp, it was half way eatten, so I dont know who was the killer.

You have such a weird tank as well. Anyways i think even fish have their own character maybe they were not educated enough lol feel bad for the cs though. I'll check mine from now on 2 cs & 2 fire shrimp.

I dont know if this happened beacuase of this.
A few months ago, someone recomended me to feed frozen brain shrimp to my tangs. I thought it was a good Idea, as the cleaner shrimp are carnivorous and they would get some too. Well, I heard not to feed this food to them everyday becuase they are hervivorous. Well, my tangs seemed to love the brain shrimp a bit too much hehehehe, so I decided not to feed brain shrimp to them anymore, I was afraid they would change their feeding habits. Oh well, I dont know if that has to do anything with my losses... I will always be wondering.
