Two days ago I woke up and got ready for school and I checked up on my tank, I saw that my smallest crab(which is new to the tank)had molted. All I saw was her molt. Then I find my male crabs with pieces of crab meat! And a little eye stalk. So the crab was eaten. Im not that upset, it's just nature, I will get a new fiddler once the lfs restocks. My dad brought home that small fiddler crab, but it was the only big enough female at the time.

Does this mean that larger fiddler crabs will attack smaller ones, regardless of gender?

Its too bad for your crab.
They are an easy kill at that time.Good luck with the next one.
It is nature and thats what we try to accomplish in our tanks.
