    Hi MASA,

    I have had a Bicolor Blenny for about 5 months now. Very healthy with loads of personality. He would perch himself on the highest point of my reef when I come over to inspect my tank daily.
    Last night I noticed him picking at some turf algae which is situated close to my Torch and Frogspawn patch. An hour later, I found 3 hermits and 2 nassarius snails devouring my Bicolor Blenny :m79::m79::m79:
    This cleanup activity was happening directly in front of the frogspawn, so am I assuming correctly???

    It wouldn't be your torch or frogspawn. Something else must have caused it to die.

    Could possibly be a mantis or pistol shrimp?

    Dont think it can be a pistol shrimp, I have one for a while now and never done any harm, might be age or something else. The froggy and torch wont be the culprits.
