Wasn't sure myself so I'm asking you guys
Definitely in the realm of possibility
yeah, if it gets hungry I could definitely see that happening
so do you think if I feed him real good he'll leave everyone alone?
No, they are an opportunistic predatory. If the chance arises, he will take it. But clowns are pretty active fish, he would probably be fine. However any basking fish (like gobies or blennies) would have a much higher chance of being eaten.
are cardinals fast enough?
doubtful, they tend to just hang in one spot
Why dont you skip the lobster? Its going to hide in the rocks and only come out at night, you wont see it much
the reason I'm making a 20 gallon salt with a lobster is beacuse he would be killed in my 200 gal I'm saving up for.
Im thinking of putting a lobster in my refugium all by his lonesome, and the refugium will be on its night cycle while the real world and the display tank are on day cycle so I may catch a glimpse of him here and there
but like little_fish said, he very well may kill pretty much anything he can get his claws on, so he is not so fish friendly
I have one. I have seen his whole body twice. Once when i put him in and once randomly one day. Pretty, but its a bummer only seeing an animals claws for a nano second.
Like my pistol shrimp..I only see his antenna LOL But if I look under my tank, I do see him crawling through his tunnels
As others have said, a Lobster if given the chance, and was hungry enough would possibly do so. Though, because Clownfish are active fish, and seemingly swim at levels in contrast with Lobsters, I think it would be a fine combination. However, it's definitely something you would have to keep an eye on.
I've got a lobster in my tank with my clown and damsel....no problems at all. The fish swim all around his little hideout all the time and hes never shown any aggression towards them. He pretty much just hides all the time.
