    Question Wrasse In=shrimp Out?

    well, I know lots of wrasses will take out shrimp but I haven't heard of the MULTICOLORED wrasses doing this. I added the WRASSE and the next day my fairly large cleaner shrimp was dead as a door nail. I've had him for over 2 years. could it be the shrimp just passed away or maybe the wrasse took him out already. mmmm.[and don't ask me if its just the molt cause I know the diff.]:bawling:

    From what I've read and IJO's info, CIRRHILABRUS are invert safe. I guess I could try adding another and see what happens.

    Johnny.. I've also read that cleaner shrimp rarely live over 2 years in an aquarium... but then again.. don't believe everything you read (unless its comming from IJO of course) :
