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.

No sounds like the fish was hungry and he found a snack

Did the fish not go back and eat the shrimp or did it just kill and leave him.

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.
