    My clean up crew keeps getting eaten. I had many types of snails, cleaner, pistol and harlequin shrimp. And assorted crabs. Over time(not at once like a die off), they all are eaten. I have read up on all my fish, and talked to many people.....all have different opinions. So here is a list of the possible bad guys. I need to figure out which one has to go !
    One spot foxface, 5 to 6 inches long.
    Blue tang, 5 inches
    Bristletooth tomini tang, 4 inches
    Lubbock's fairy wrasse, 3 inches
    Lamarck's angelfish, 3 to 4 inches
    Engineer goby, 8 to 9 inches
    The angelfish was added after the problem had started so I don't think he is the problem. Everything I have read on this wrasse says he will not eat inverts, but many people have said he will. Same with the engineer goby. I need to get the bad guy out...so please give me your opinions. Thanks !
