    Holy cow!

    I didn't know they were capable of taking out fish like that!

    What else has it caught?

    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.

    Agreed scoly's and the like arn't predatorial hunters they dont have any way of really killing a fish, especially a fish like a foxface. There is high chance that the fish was already dead or on its way out.

    my guess is its something else that caused the death and the scoly takes advantage of the free meal. I believe it was junior who had a rhyzo that ate a few fish, but it didnt kill them just ate what was already dead. From what I know of scoly's I dont think they can kill fish.

    No scoly isnt strong enough to hold let alone kill a healthy fish.
