  1. Unhappy Unknown cause of death

    Hello,I have a 29 gallon biocube reef tank that currently has 1 azure damsel, 1 saddle blennie, 1 fire fish, 1 peppermint shrimp, 1 emerald crab, and an assortment of blue legged hermit crabs and snails. Up until a couple of days ago we had a misbared ocelaris clownfish who was 1-1/2 inches long a great feeder and one of our most healthy fish. He died over night without showing any symtoms of disease, does anyone have any ideas why he died?

    How big is the damsel ? Have you ever seen the damsel be aggressive towards the clown fish?

    If there is no aggression in the tank, it might be internal parasites ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    He was only slightly larger and pretty much ignored the clown

    Now the crab is dead, he was the one who ate the clown, so could the parasites have transferred if so we got the crab out before anything could take a bite out of him.

    Crabs are scavengers, I would not think they would be so easily effected by parasites.

    Which crab is dead, one of the hermits or the emerald ? The reason why I ask is that it is common for hermit crabs to attack and kill each other for their shells. If it is the emerald crab, just take a very close look to make sure the crab did not just molt.

    I am at a loss for what could have killed your clown fish base on everything in this thread
