    What's killing my crabs? I've lost 2 crabs in 2 days and i have no idea why, I've found the body completely removed from the shells like the pic attached. I have a pair of clowns, 3 damsels and a goby along with snails... could it be any of the fish? Or do the snails prey on each other? There was 4 of them.

    I have a sneaky suspicion it may be one of their own kind doing it as the ones who have been killed were small compared to boris who is huge lol maybe they tried to out him to pinch his shell and lost ???
