Best bet, keep your eyes open for missing fish

Hope this helps...
I have a starfish would an emerald crab bother it because I have alot of bubble algae that needs taken care of.

I don't "disturb my gravel so much", I pulled up some plants to find the rotting carcass because I didn't think it should be in the tank! And I found it pretty quick.
My damsels always got along just fine--although I know swim bladder CAN be a cause of bullying so I'll have to watch out for that too!

Im glad this is quite common to lose a damsel. I placed two in my tank after a month of running with just live and base rock. They have been in roughly two weeks and now the YellowTail is missing. I have checked all rocks and sift through the sand and couldn't find nothing.

The crab shouldn't mess with the starfish but if you are having a serious algae "problem", you may want to think about Astria snails instead and/or some other algae eating fishes. Also, you want to keep a check on the nitrate levels in your tank. Algaes grow when they have a food source and nitrogen (in it's many forms) are a food source.

Hope this helps...

Just get a good clean up crew. I dont think you should try and get a fish to do the job.
