i posted earlier about my 2 clowns, 1 yellow tang, 1 cc starfish, and "killer" crab.

i noticed a while ago that the crab (dont know what species, but fast) seemed to go after the 2 clowns. now when i came home from work today, one clown was stuck to the filter. i helped the little guy off, and he was just struggling to stay alive. i examined him, i really didnt see a wound on him. Ended up dying short after. im wondering if the **** crab got him though. i checked my water

nitrate-20 ppm
nitrite-0 ppm
ammonia-0 ppm

after disassembling my tank, i got the crab out

is it possible the crab could've, not eaten, but injured the clown to death?
