Coral Banded Shrimp Question
Previously I was unaware that anything would eat bristleworms but today I was watching my tank and my coral banded shrimp grabbed something off his rock and scuttled down the bottom. When he stopped I saw that he had a bristleworm in his pinchers! I laughed because I thought he would never be able to eat it. But he ripped all the bristles of the worm and ate it while I watched. I was wondering if this is something that coral banded shrimp do or if mine's just crazy. Help?
