Longnose Hawkfish

Has anyone had any problems with a longnose hawkfish eating their shrimps or crabs? I have had an arrow crab and a camel shrimp go missing in the past 2 days and I think the hawkfish is the culprit. Just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this also.

I have one but no shrimp, so no knowledge currently. I had one before that didn't even bother my cleaner shrimp, which was at least 2 inches long. What other fish do you have? Another one could be the culprit.

Tanks:
54 Corner Saltwater with 80 ish lbs. LR, 40 LBS. LS, Aqua C Remora Pro Skimmer with Rio 1100 pump, and Marineland C-220 Canister Filter with ROWA inserted for Phosphate (Sump being planned)
Livestock:
1 Female Clown-Isolated for bullying
1 Chromis
1 Longnose Hawk
Zoanthids
Some Xenia
Some Long-tentacled Leather Mushrooms
Organ Pipe
Bubble Coral


3 Gallon Fresh Eclipse with some decorations and a Lemon Tetra

I have a YW goby, he hangs out with the shrimps i have left so i doubt it was him. I have 2 clowns a b&w and an ocellaris but they both are about 1 1/2 inches and they dont seem to bother anybody and a firefish and a wrasse but they both hide all night long. I saw the hawkfish take a jab at one of my shrimps the other day so thats why I'm guessing it was him.

Must be the individual. I have had a Clown about 3" kill a shrimp, but it's probably the Hawk for you.
