    Just got home 10 min ago, and i noticed my sally light foot was at the back of my tank and in pieces.He was ok last night.I have 4 snails ,1 emaral crab, 2 peppermint shrimp, 1 urchin, and 2 clowns. Who done it? I know the sally lightfoot was not all that polite, but murdered was not the answer.
