Peppermint Cleaner Shrimp are known to exhibit cleaning habits just like the other members of the Lysmata family. Peppermint shrimp offer an added bonus as it is well known to be a safe, non-chemical means of removing Aiptaisia in the aquarium. Because it will eat Aiptaisia, it may also go after desirable polyps such as Yellow Polyps, Zoanthids and in some cases, Large Polyp Stony Corals. The Peppermint shrimp will only consume the smaller aiptaisia, leaving the larger ones for manual removal.
Peppermint Shrimp are nocturnal and will rarely be seen during daylight hours.
Will consume any foods that it's tankmates will eat. Prefers marine flesh including clam, scallop, raw table shrimp, mysis shrimp, mussel, silversides and will even eat nori.
