    I bought a Debeluis Reef Lobster for my marine tank and the next morning one of my Green Chromis tail was gone.It seems it was cut off by a scissor. Could it be the[​IMG] lobster? I do not want to endanger my other fish. Must I take the lobster out? Can anyone help me please.

    Dude I dont know hey I have kept these guys for years and never ever had one go for a fish even in my nano which was loaded with small damsels, chromis and clowns and a lobster. But If it did it would be due to near starvation I would suggest target feeding it for a few days and the let it scavenge after that. But do some reaserch and you will find almost no cases were they have been aggresive towards fish. They are stunning and worth the effort to keep

    i have one of those and no issues at all, they will only eat dying or dead fish...
    even my wrasse is safe.

    but then again it is all dependant on the temperament of the lobster, i will try and get a pic of mine, he is about 7cm now
