The Peppermint Shrimp is best known for its natural ability
to manage nuisance Aiptasia, or glass anemones. Peppermint Shrimp
are very social and peaceful towards most reef inhabitants and
picks its way around your aquarium and live rock to
consume detritus, uneaten food,
and decomposing organic material.
Do you have any peppermint shrimp in your reef? If so, do they help to keep problematic pest anemones under control?
