Default Peppermint Shrimp and aiptasia

Just thought id post that my two peppermint shrimp purchased from Shoreline Corals have eaten almost all my aiptasia. Its been a month and i forgot until i saw a small aiptasia and then looked around and they are almost gone other than a few small ones. Even the larger ones have been eaten. I know ive always read mixed reviews whether they would work or not.

Apparently there are a couple of "varities" of peppermints, so you need to get the right ones!

I have had success with peppermints and copperbands, but copperbands come with their own caveats too. One of my favorite fish, I do have one currently.

No experience with filefish.

Kalk pasting is kind of therapeutic and rewarding if you ask me! lol

When my daughter was younger she would help me kill the "sea boogers" lol

My ORA file fish completely cleared my tank. A few random zoa colonies also disappeared but Iím not completely sure it was him (other colonies are fine) but if so, it was worth it. He now happily eats frozen and his quirky look fits well in my tank
