Exclamation Coral banded shrimp killing fish??

Last night I added a coral banded shrimp and a baby queen angel maybe1/2 inch that I caught this morning my juvenile Atlantic blue tang was found dead and now my clarkki clown isn't looking so good all the other fish are fine besides my French angel that we think is in its color change he started getting gray dots and now he is all gray with yellow stripes so I was wondering if it was the shrimp or what the tang was fine last nightThanks

You dnt want to put fish in tanks that are too small you need to do more research. Yes those fish stay tiny but to put it bluntly it's because you are stunting there growth and shortining there life span. The saying you put a fish tht gets big in a small tank it stays small is a lie. Fish produce hormones and when it's a fish that gets big they produce alot. When the hormone reachs a certain point your fish will get hole in head which is a number of open sores in the fishes face. the sores will eventually get so large ur fish will literally start bleeding to death threw the sores it is a very painful and slow way to die. Do more research on a fish before you go shovein it into a tank most large Angels need a 150 gal tank MINIMUM. I'm sry if I miss spelled or sounded mean but really tho more reasearch friend...
