My wife's favorite shrimp, a sexy shrimp she named Magic Mike lol:dance: has been missing for the last week and I have a feeling my Diamond watchman goby may be the reason why it was missing. The only other residents of the tank are 2 small hermits, a cleaner shrimp and 2 clowns. My Hammer hosted the sexy shrimp and had been living with the clowns for the last 5 months so i don't think it was them....

the clowns may have evicted the shrimp and once the shrimp was out of the safety of the hammer the goby may have taken the opportunity of an easy bite sized meal. But its hard to say. The shrimp may turn up a month from now having grown tired of hiding. I hope it turns back up but my money is on goby ate it.

The cleaner shrimp might have done it. Species of shrimp will. I've never known a goby to attack a shrimp, but then I've never had a diamond.
