I was watching my 12g nano tank today. I fed the tank some mysis shrimp, and right in front of my very own eyes, my yellow watchmen goby, he ate my peppermint shrimp that i got yesterday. :bawling: the peppermint was only about an inch big. but still i did not know a goby would even consider eating a shrimp. Has anyone ever seen this or heard of this happening with a YWG?

Gobies love shrimp.......but usually will leave the bigger ones alone. Consider it paid entertainment I guess and try a larger one next time. Sorry about your loss. Steve
