I am currently looking into mini maxi carpets and was wondering what fishes will eat a sexy shrimp.
I have two juv clowns
a three striped damsel that will be moved soon
a yellow/purple wrasse
a orange spot goby
pistol shrimp
tail spot blenny

Also, what are the chances of mini carpets to eat fishes if anemone

I have a mini carpet anemone in my tank since last October. Added 4 sexy shrimp to it. One disappeared shortly after but the rest have been living in it for a year. When I feed my fish mysis, I squirt some at the mini to catch. The sexy shrimp go and eat some. My fish have never bothered them. I have angels, tangs, clowns, wrasses, chromis, anthias, gobies and a mandarin.

bumping this thread. I am planning on getting a bunch of carpet, maxi/mini, and rock flower nems and adding a bunch of sexy shrimp. the tank will house some clowns, a neon dpttyback and a flame angel. I am worried that the dotty back or the angel may eat them. is this true?

I have dwarf angels, leopard wrasses, and dottybacks in my tank with sexy shrimp and none of them even acknowledge the shrimp
 

Do you utilize the weekends for tank tasks?
