I have had the ricordias for a long time. Something is taking periodic bites from them till they are ulimately gone.

New additions to the tank are:

Most recent
-mandaring fish
-Horned Blenny

-2 weeks ago 2 electric blue Hermits
-1 hermit that was supposed to be an electric blue but has red knuckles
-1 brittle star

Someone with a giant tank had that same sort of a problem a while ago and it turned out to be a nasty nocturnal worm beast of some sort.
Try looking into the tank with a red lensed flashlight for several nights at different times past tank-lights-out and maybe you can catch the bugger that's doing it.

Good luck!

I caught it. It was my my Horned Blenny! He chased my hand as I took the remaining ricordia out of the tank! He has since sampled a rhodactus, but I don't think he liked it....

I'm shocked. I didn't know a blenny would eat that sort of stuff.
