I'd hold off til I get a better handle on things. I find it hard to believe such a small fish ate or killed fish bigger than him.

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

No, Nemo was the biggest fish. The Damsel was tiny, like half his size and the Blenny was a little smaller too

Ocellaris are the least aggressive of the clowns supposedly. How big is the tank? Maybe he is territorial. Did you notice him chasing the other fish at all?? How big is he approx? 2 inch? 3? They don't get much bigger than that. If you add more fish try to rearrange the rock work so they both feel like they are in a new tank.

Or maybe it is something else completely, evil hitchhiker crab or mantis.

People often forget that clownfish are in the same family as damsels, they can be aggressive and territorial. My perculas will pick on any fish that let's them. That being said, I don't know that they killed your blenny. If they were picking on him and he stressed then its possible, but I would look for the culprit else where. What are you water parameters and how long has the tank been established?

I think what happened is that the scooter died due to starvation, and then the damsel might have died due to the ammonia spike.

What size tank and how much LR do you have?

Though clowns are mean and damsels I don't think this is the case this time

Edit: I see you got a 29G tank, starvation is definitely what the scooter died of
