I just gave my friend a huge, beautiful, fat melanurus. I like a CUC and it devoured every snail and would rip hermits from their shells throwing the shell across the tank. He is happy in his new 450 gallon tank at least.
My Timor wrasse will eat micro bristle stars like spaghetti, also small bristle worms. He will eat small limpets, any snail smaller than a pea, spiorbis worms off the glass. When he's hungry he will throw Astrea snails at the glass.

Pretty sure he also ate my peppermint shrimps but I honestly don't know. They are just .... missing... my cleaner shrimp he leaves alone. The arrow crab was small enough he could of ate it in one bite but also left it alone.

I put a dozen peppermint shrimp in my tank and only ever see molts attached to my urchins. Most of my aptasia disappeared so they must still be in there but I never see them. They are sneaky.

I still have aiptasia, I wish those would disappear. I'm thinking about a copperband, I'm afraid berghia would get ate.

I have a peppermint shrimp that had an appetite for RFAs. Talk about sneaky! I finally caught it in action. It lives in my sump now and I have a bunch of happy RFAs again.

i really want to try berghia, their size is just so concerning. i know i could help lower the likelihood of them being eaten by adding a lot at once, but they're so expensive and i really don't want to have to ship some to me

So I'm getting ready to go hunting for a little over a week (unless we're all 3 successful early). Should I sump the destructive Pincushion while I'm gone?
