not sure what the heck happened but all the sudden my fire fish is swimming around with half a body
Looks like somebody had fish for dinner. Do you have a crab or such in there.
No that’s the weird thing I don’t have any oversized crabs just your normal hermits...a couple tuxedo urchins...I think this is a stretch but is it possible bristle worms could have done this? I have a ton of them now but hardly think they could do something like that...coral banded shrimp as well but i dont know if he would be the culprit either
Interesting now that I look at my shrimp he is missing one of his big claw arms so that seems like a very likely culprit
Coral banded shrimp have been known to go after fish.
Agreed, they definitely could do it
Howz the little guy doing?
I think he must be a goner I haven’t seen him...not sure a fish can survive in that condition lol...he was missing about half his body...I caught my CBS and it now has a new home in the sump...which sucks u pay good money for a cool looking shrimp and now it will never be seen
You can always go down in the basement and visit him.
I suppose your right everytime I go down to top off my tank I can go over and say hi assh#%* thanks for killing my purple fire fish that had been doing fine for 2 years
