Killed by a RummyNose

I was watching my tank today, and I saw a RCS swimming by, then I saw a rummy nose grab his antenna and hung on to it. He then let go and then bit it again, and swung him around a few times. The RCS finally hit the substrate, and he just sat there, then he went sideways..

I think he lost his antennas, he suffered for a few hours and now he is dead. I see no visible damage other than shaved of antennas. Poor guy.

He left him. Didnt even go back down to check it out. I find that rummynose are kinda dumb, compared to tetras. What a waste.

I left the body in there for a couple of hours, and the neons came around and hovered a few times, then picked at the legs.

I then removed it, because I really do not need them to start liking the taste of shrimp, and then actively hunting my shrimps.
