    My yellow tang attacks both of my cleaner shrimp and eats their antenna (sp?). It really frustrates me to see these large healthy shrimp with half eaten antenna.

    I've had my Yellow Tang for 4 years and it has never been agressive.

    I had one that was very territorial. It actually nipped my kenya tree coral constantly. Needless to say I traded it in....

    did your tang stop with the agression or is it still at it? If so what did you do or did you do anything to rectify the situation?

    Dan, it will all depend upon how damaged your feather duster was and how healthy (energy reserves) it is. Feather dusters loose crowns now and then, and if they have enough reserves, they will grow a new crown - though usually smaller.

    DAN... No, the tang is at it constantly. He chases the shrimp into the corner of the tank and starts chomping. I don't think the tang is hungry or anything because I feed my fish alot of food. Sooner or later, I am going to have to trade the tang in. My tank is a 55 gallon and I think this tank is too small for my tang. He is a little bit too edgy.
