Because it's an evil shrimp which loves to torment humans. If it was bigger, it would eat you. :P

 

Seriously though, I've hear of them eating corals before. He was probably hungry.

 

It's also possible that your hammer wasn't doing so well, and the pep just finished it off. Only you would know.

 

How much lighting do you have over how many gallons?

 

Did you just get the coral? Shocked?

 

More info might help.

Are you sure you didnt get a camel shrimp? They have a similar pattern and coloration and often get mixed up. They are not reef safe so i would do some research on them to see if you got one mistakenly.

 

FWIW, i have 2 now with no problems at all (nock on wood).

Did you see him doing it, or just catch him picking dead-ass fragments?

 

Either way, shrimp can get rough with coral flesh.

my lfs like to sell camels as peps. evil funkers!

 

i'd keep an eye on the pep. mine ate some of my clove polyps.

if yours ate your hammer, he might go after your other corals
