  1. Livestock Breeding and Propagation
    I got a small population of Peppermint Shrimp, and without a doube some were female and noticed some are carrying eggs within their tail. That got me to wondering how Peppermint Shrimp are successfully bred. I know they are breed in captivity, but can anyone give any details as to doing so?

    Hi, I'm new to Reef Tank. Relatively new to marine aquariums. Anyway, I'm upsizing to a bigger tank, transferring fish and live rock and this little guy is swimming around. Does anyone know what it is? Bad or good? Should I throw him in the new tank or not?

    Just started my refugium about two weeks ago - still new to the critters to expect. Found this guy marching around down there. Probably a good half inch long not including the whiskers. So are amphipods normally this big, if that is indeed what this is??? I guess he hitchhiked on a ball of...

    Last time I had a hitchhiker on a live rock (quite a few, actually) I thought it was something good, but you guys pointed out that it was aiptasia. I bought a couple of peppermint shrimp and now there are no more aiptasia. Today, I'll do it again. I bought a live rock from my nearby Petco...
