DETECTIVE WORK: chain reactions you'd never believe...
1. case one: fish turns up with red mark on side. Disease suspected.
A: possibly so, but in one case of this, the red mark was from a pistol shrimp. How detected? The wounded fish dens in burrows and low in the rocks at night. More than one fish turned up like this. Fatally so. Removing the pistol shrimp prevented further cases.

2. case two: another red mark, but no pistol present.
A: The offender turned out...

Clean-up Crew In!

Posted 02/08/2014 at 01:20 PM by zitra
