I just bought a larger Banded Coral shrimp.
Levels are fine,current is good.
I have two clowns in the 26 gal tank.
The shrimp was found dead the next day.
Could it be these aggressive clowns ?

Can I keep shrimp with clowns ?

Thanks in advance.

might not be dead---just molted--the molt looks identical to the shrimp

how did you acclimate the shrimp--did you check the salinity of the LFS water in the bag--sometimes it can be 1.018 compared to 1.026 in your DT

Are you sure it's dead, and has not molted, but if dead the clowns probably did not bother him ,I have two clowns and a Banded shrimp in my tank with no problem.

I have a CBS in a tank with a mated pair of clowns. They have all been together going on 3 years now. No problems. I would check to make sure you are not seeing a molt.
