Re: peppermint Shrimp

Yup. I've had em eat up Aiptasia. Depends on how many Aiptasia you have, may take some time to get rid of them all.

Re: peppermint Shrimp

I have always had success with peppermints. A big key to get them to clean them up quickly is to stop feeding the tank or if you have fish feed once every 3 days.

Re: peppermint Shrimp

so I got a peppermint shrimp and he looked good and healthy in the LFS but when I got him home he had lost all of his color and now is white as a ghost. Is this because of stress?
