Very possible, but they tend to leave very little to find....much less a body with a "bullet" hole😡🔫. But it is a foul tasting Mandarin so that's my theory for now unless I find something at night in a trap. Last nights only trapped some of my Nass Snails😳

what type of nassarius snails do you have?
Are they the white/grey/beige smallish ones or are the larger spotted ones with brown spots on white?
the larger ones are pretty voracious and their mouth parts could very easily make a hole like that.

Very Interesting. There are some larger ones in there, no more than 3-5 in a 75 g Are you saying they made the hole after the Mandarin was gone or killed it?

Is there a bulge on its left side just below it's head? I looked at the pic to see if he looked malnourished, and it didn't look quite right to me . Wondering if there was a mass or even hosting some sore of parasite.

There was no bulge, but some matter from the inside was removed. Suspect it died from shipping and the hole was made by a large nass, have had another since and it is eating and growing fine. Great addition to the tank love to watch the little guy hunt. Just need to be mindful of its diet.
