AAAAK! Just bought a brand new cleaner shrimp today for the new reef. 3 hours later - dead on the bottom!!! And guess who dragged him off for dinner....Mr. @*&#^@ Coral Banded! Well I guess that answers my question about adding any more shrimp. Funny - he left the cheapo peppermints alone.
Am I blaming the CBS unjustly for this crime - (do we think I just got a bad cleaner?) or is this typical "banded" behavior?
I acclimated for about 45 minutes which was probably not long enough - although the fish did fine. I am worried about territory though because the CBS is pretty big - I have had him for almost 3 years.......and he has been in this new tank for about 5 weeks staking out his territory. I guess I'll try again - yikes.
