I found my Diamond Goby with Red Leg Hermit in his mouth. Crab was out of shell. Have had 2 other die. Could the goby be killing them. Never heard of them killing crabs

Sorry if I find a little humor here, but I can picture the Goby with the Hermit legs hanging out of the mouth.

Its not likely that the goby is killing the hermits. It is carnivorous, but ive never heard a case of a watchman hunting hermits.

TOTS
I know its funny to thimk about, but you should have seen him swimming around with crab legs hanging out. Don't want to think he killed it but thats the 3rd crab I found out of shell dead. I witnessed this one in his mouth. Maybe he just picked it up off the bottom.

My Diamond doesn't kill my cleanup crew but my blue spotted watchmen goby kills all my snails. He literally carrys the shell around in his mouth and stacks them behind his favorite cave. I have to clear his area out after a couple weeks its annoying haha.
