OK, OK. I know that camel shrimp are not reef friendly. Unfortunately the LFS only carries camel shrimp and "sexy shrimp."

The sexy shrimp are cool, kinda dark colored with a white pattern on them. I was just wondering if anyone knew if they were reef friendly. If not, it looks like I will have to order pepermint shrimps somewhere online. . .

Sexy shrimp are reef friendly and very cool looking. They do best in groups of three, but because they are very small fish can easily eat them. From my experience, they like to hang around or on anemones. If you don't have one they will probably used some other surrogate coral. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info! They are cool looking animals, and I will keep the "groups of three" tidbit in mind.
