Re: Peppermint Shrimp

Although your nitrates are 30-40ppm which isn't crazy high but high none the less i would work on getting them around 10ppm. Yeh like madness said they basically will eat anything.....including aptasia!

Re: Peppermint Shrimp

They are basically scavengers, they'll eat anything. Give a piece of Mysis couple times a week. But, acclimation to yiur tank is key with theses guys, gotta drip em. Time frame on wether they make it or not in your tank is 2 weeks.

Peppermint Shrimp

Is there in anything in particular that peppermint shrimp eat. I cant seem to keep them alive. I have corals that are healthy, a sea urchin who seems fine a bunch of snails and star fish but cant seem to keep my peppermint shrimp alive. Ive had 2 and both have died about 2 weeks after being in the tank. I know it wasnt their molt because this one just molted the day after i put him in the tank. any suggestions..nitrates are around 10-20 so there not extremley high
