    Hi,

    I found my one clown half eaten this morning and went on a search mission to find the one responsible. I found these 2 crabs and about 20+ of the worms. Could the crabs be the ones eating my clown fish?

    Bristle worms are part of the clean up crew, They will eat a dead fish, and that is a good thing.

    Those crabs, not sure if they could take down the clown fish, depending in its size most likely, Because compared to the coin those crabs are rather small. Still, while you got them out, do not re-introduce them either. They will grow up and later be able to take out crabs. They make excellent food for triggers... Just saying.

    Put them in your sump. They will keep it clean of food that doesn't get eaten by your fish.
