peppermint vs. foxface

5 of those evil peppermint shrimp got my sick foxface tang drug him under a rock and tried eating him alive well I guess that's natures way

There had to be something wrong with the foxface. There is no way five peppermint shrimp would drag a healty foxface down under some rock. He had to be pretty well gone for that to happen.

Try soaking some dried seaweed in garlic juice. They are herbivores.
