hmmm interesting, the biggest fish i got on the tank is a black striped white clownfish that is an inch anda half long. is it possible that he is the one who ate 2 of my shrimps ?

also another qustion, one of my blue damsel has a wound on it's body, should i stop the copper treatment for a while ? or is it ok ?
It was just a theory, I'm not sure they got eaten. Shrimp can be hard to find if they die.

If the instructions say to stop the copper treatment if there is a wound on a fish, then you should stop. :)

The shrimp can be eaten when it change size, this is the most vulnerable time when their shelf become soft.

Don't rely on those to clean the water condition, get a good skimmer, water treatment canister or hang on filter.
