    Well yesterday I added a peppermint shrimp(yes it for sure is) to my tank. I carefully looked at it before I bought it. According to online websites they are reef safe so I got it. I've noticed it picking at my green star polyps so I went out and bought shrimp to feed it. Yea I know shrimp...

    So, within five minutes of adding my first Peppermint shrimp into my newly cycled tank, it killed the only anemone that was growing on one of my live rocks. Good news, right? I'm going for a fish/reef tank.

    Hey guys a few days ago I added a zoanthid to my tank and I have noticed that the peppermint shrimp won't leave it alone. I wouldn't think too much of it but because it keeps going on it, it keeps closing. Any solutions or experience with this? Thanks in advance!!

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL!!! Been a while since I have posted, but I do not know how to fix my tank and I am not sure if I can trust my LFS. Long story short, I have a really bad aiptasia problem in my tank. I have several "large" ones and cannot count the amount of small ones. I have a rock...

    Hey guys...I've had these things for a long time now and my peppermint shrimp have been doing a pretty good job of keeping it under control. Unfortunately my peps have gone to a better place and now its getting a little out of hand and my LFS doesn't have peppermints anymore (sucks). Anyway this...

    Hi all, My 29g tank finished cycling about a week ago, i was excited to put in some little critters (so much better than watching diatoms grow). I wanted to add a peppermint shrimp to go after the aiptasia that started growing on my LR during the cycling period. I only added 1 nassarius...

    Hi all, I have a question regarding compatibility among some shrimp I want. I also want a purple reef lobster :) Right now I have two peppermint shrimp and I really want to get a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp and that purple reef lobster. Would these all work together? I had to say goodbye to the...

    The question is how can an average person know they are actually buying the real peppermint Shrimp? I read that so many LFS say they have Peppermint Shrimp when they are something else. Tell us how we can tell for sure. I would like to know if mine are the real ones as I was told when I...

    I've had my tank going for around 4 months and identified aptasia on some of the live rocks. After reading through various posts I decided to get some peppermint shrimp to combat the problem. I have a 30 gallon tank and the LFS suggested 9 shrimp. I thought this was overkill so I went with 6. A...

    Hi, I am having a lot of trouble controlling an Apistasia outbreak in my 24 gallon cube. Of course its my first tank, so I did not know about cooking rock...and now the little guys are everywhere. I've lost a Xenia, a couple frags, and now one's attacking a Zoo colony. I've bought some...

    Hi all, I was just admiriing my fish when I noticed one of my peppermint shrimp was pregnant again! She has only released a clutch of eggs about 2 days ago, then both my peppermints molted and now she is carrying a full clutch again today. I was wondering if this is normal for them? Has...

    I walked away from the tank for a minute and when I looked back there was white stuff and slime going everywhere. My peppermint shrimp was tearing apart and eating my torch coral faster than I could process what was happening. Within 15 seconds that coral was gone! A few minutes later the...
