Unhappy Do you think my coral banded shrimp could have ate my lunar wrasse?

My wrasse has been missing for 5 days and I checked all of the rocks. There is sand in my tank. I haven't seen him since my shrimp is pregnant but I hope she didn't eat him.

My initial thought is no way in heck did the coral banded eat a lunar wrasse, in fact, I'd say it's more likely that you'll end up with a missing banded shrimp at some point. How big is the lunar? It's not unheard of for a wrasse to go into hiding for a week or more upon introduction.

Does your tank have a hood or closed top? Wrasse and gobies are infamous for jumping out of the tank. Wrasse are also really good at hiding, one time my wrasse came out of nowhere 4 days later, the last time he disappeared he was in my sump and when I put him back in the display tank, he never fully recovered.

Just witnessed my CBS attack and kill a twin spot Goby. The shrimp has been in the tank for some time and does fine with the fish that are in there, but when I put in the goby the shrimp walked right over and grabbed him. By the time I could separate them the fish was dead. The goby was fairly small, but I had put in a big fat madarin goby the week before and found him dead 2 days later. Now I am pretty sure that the CBS killed him.
