Why would a skunk cleaner shrimp die?
Right now we have a 29gal tank that has been established for alittle over 2 months, we have a fire shrimp, 2 CC starfish, 1 camel shrimp, and we had 2 skunk cleaner shirmp.
Last night we added 2 percula clown fish to the tank, after our 55g is cycled and ready, we will be moving all of them to the new 55g....
Anyway, they are all perfectly fine last night, but when I woke up this morning the larger of the 2 skunk cleaner shrimp was dead...
The only think I can think of is that the camel shrimp and the fire shrimp would charge at both the cleaner shrimp if they crossed paths too close... I never actually saw any contact made, just a charge and the cleaners would run the other way..
Also we fed the tank brine shrimp with garlic last night, we have never fed the inverts with garlic before last night, does that effect the inverts at all?
