Hello Loach lovers!
I have 3 clowns in a 55 gal. I also had a blue lobster, note the word "had". During the time I had the lobster he molted once with no problems and was doing fine. Today he was acting funny and next thing I know he is starting to shed his shell. I turned the lights off in my tank and was checking on him every once in a while and in no time the loaches had taken advantage of him during his molt and had basically started eating him. This all happened so fast the lobster was dead before I could do anything. I feel bad I couldn't save him, I guess this is nature. So beware what you have in a community with your loaches. They are great fish and always peacefull but t
