amano shrimp snacking on Crystal reds?
I have a super heavy 55 gallon planted tank with perhaps 200 crystal reds and 20-30 grown adult amano shrimp that are huge. Both my wife and I keep seeing them snacking occasionally on crystal reds...and I'm not talking about ones that are clearly dead for a while but perfectly colored ones. They are pretty ruthless about it too, "cutting" the shrimp into two pieces and eating the inside. I know this isn't common so I'm wondering if it's possible they are going for freshly molten ones? I have never seen them attacking juvenile or baby shrimp.
Has anyone else had a similar experience before? This started when the amanos reached full size, and yes, I'm 100% sure they are amano shrimp and not some other species. Is it possible I don't feed them enough? (daily flake food and every second day batter AE or shrimp pellets).
