Yeah he is a murderous little bastard.... thankfully just spotted my Hermit. So clearly Benny was eating her Molt.
He has been chasing the Sexy Shrimp around the tank for most of the day now as well......
Thankfully he doesn't seem to annoy my coral, or try and host the Duncan (don't want him getting ate)

Some sad news, got home from work last night to find that somehow Cobolt managed to get past the dividers in my split tank and fight not just Opal but Ouro as well. I put Opal and Ouro into QT's with airstone to try and save them. Seems the beating was too much, both passed today.

Cobolt is looking like death himself at the minute, hes lost both pectoral fins in the fight.

Never doing a divided tank again

Cobolt is hanging in there, I am still so mad at myself for this mistake. Here is his less wounded side. The other side looks like he has injured/missing an eye. Before the fin came off

Thanks, still really angry with myself for causing this.
Going to be draining the tank and shuffling things around this weekend, might do another SW tank or something else
Need a bit of time to forgive myself first though
