    :eek:Hey guys , ive got a problem... My tang keeps eating my cleaner shrimps tenticles.
    Its trange coz my fire shrimp is fine and does not get eaten.

    Some thing i read said that its coz the tang feels the shrimp isnt doing its job of cleaning it and thats why he nips at him.

    He is molting, they do that as they get too big for their own skin and sheds it. He will probably hide for a day or two until the new exoskeleton is hardend.

    Feed the tang a little more, might stop it harrassing the shrimp.
