    I did some quick researching and couldn't find any accounts of this species feeding on aiptasia. They seem to be primarily omnivores that feed on coral and inverts. Maybe @eatbreakfast has some experience with them.

    I haven't had them eat aiptasia, but they were pretty reef safe.

    I don't think it will be an issue with the harlequin shrimp.
