    Once in a while we're reminded that all of the inhabitants of our reefs are part of the food chain, and their sole purpose is not to look pretty in our tanks and be our pets.

    I don't know if this hermit was ripped from his home or if he was attacked whilst changing shells, but without his protection he was ripped into by all and sundry.

    Looks like the wrasse could be the culprit

    As Warr said, it's most likely the spottail wrasse, which has crustaceans in it's normal diet. I think that any of the fish would have been opportunistic, and have attacked it, if it was defensless and outside of it's shell.

    In the 60's maybe yes. Hell, look at the graphic content of PC and Playstation games these days. And I personally think very small kids wont even know what it is. Tell you what, I'll run this by my 6yr old and my 2 year old and see how they react without me telling them what is going on there. That will give you some idea as to post it or not? ;)

    I found a hermit without a shell the other day on the LR. He was extremely nervous and did look out of his environment.
    I held an empty shell in front of him and he jumped in immediately.

    It was like a girly moment, "ooh cute"...

    Okey, so I will photoshop stars over it's private parts... :lol::lol::lol:

    My wife can't watch lions etc hunting, she cries and gets REALLY upset to see nature take it's course, so she might be offende by this, but then again, she also wanted to see what our small Mantis Shrimp would do if the cleaner shrimp were to walk over it's cave, so who know? :p
