My damn damsel is messing with my new porcelin crab


Recommended Posts

Is this part of the teritorial thing I have read about? He keeps scooping in at him and waving his tail kicking sand in his face. Should I get rid of the damsel?

Damsels are very aggressive, what size tank? Ive never heard of them messing with crabs before. Although me cleaner shrimp and percs do little displays at each other sometimes.

DANG, you have a seven gallon tank. Dont even sweat removing the rock. Piece o' cake. How hard is it to remove the LR from your tank, and put it into a bucket. most pails hold more water than our tanks. Try to remove a damsel your wife wanted from a 50 gallon with over 80 pounds of LR in it. Now that's a pain in the buttay

Hi, I had to remove a green chromis of mine. Not due to being mean but for treatment. I turned out the tank lights and used a flashlight. He just swam into the top corner and I just scooped him up. Might be worth a try before removing your rock :)
