    Peppermint Shrimp Question

    We added a peppermint shrimp to our reef tank and he's been hanging out in the top corners by either the return or the intake. He occasionally runs around upsidedown by the back wall. Is this normal behavior? I was expecting him to find a cave or crevice under the rock, so him staying at the...

    Shrimp/Fish Interactions?

    I have 2 black/white ocellaris clowns, and the three shrimp I added to the tank are DESPERATE to clean them. The clowns simply aren't having it. Could this be because they are tank raised and have never seen/experienced this behavior before or because they just aren't usually ok with being...

    Shrimp reproduction questions

    1) My lone peppermint shrimp (from Florida so it should be Lysmata wurdemanni) looks to be holding eggs. She's never done this before. So I used my Google-fu and found that they are proandrous hermaphrodites. They all start out as male and them become hermaphrodites (and maybe then become...

Then, I wasn't able to locate it, which didn't really concern me as there are a lot of hiding places. But one night near lights out, I noticed the 2 Peppermint Shrimp that I have prowling about the...

    How to kill Aiptasia (preferably under water)?

    Peppermint shrimp doesn't seem to work (I put in 3 small one yesterday and I don't see them anymore LOL .... let alone them fixing my Aiptasia). I had a bigger Peppermint shrimp earlier this year and it seems to work on those Aiptasia but shame, I think it gets eaten by the BTA; perhaps what I...

    Tube Anemone and Peppermint Shrimp

    When I first put my Tube Anemone into my invertebrate quarantine tank my peppermint shrimp immediately popped out from hiding and went to town eating its tentacles. So I quickly setup a tank divider and placed all peppermint shrimp on the other side. My question is simply what is the...

    Hello friends! I have a couple of pest anemones in my 60 gal. One is a majano, and one aptaisia. I can only see the two. Just little guys. I've had them here and there and I usually just kill them as they pop up. Hasn't been a big problem so far. However I'm going to be adding a peppermint...
