Goby killing fish?

Think my diamond spotted watchmen goby is killing my clowns. Found my first clown dead with one eye missing and one gill missing and today I found my designer dead in the goby little den. I'm sitting here watching him and it seems like could be the one because it's charging my chromis. Anyone have this problem or heard of it?

The goby most likely ate the eye after the clownfish died and drifted near the burrow

Funny, because my Sleeper Goby had his eye eating out. Thought he would live for a while, but he died. :-( Still don't know why eat the eye out. My guess is my puffer fish!

+1 agreed. He was just cleaning up the mess. Fish died of other causes IMO.
