    Sexy shrimp and peppermint shrimp do better in small groups. The sexy shrimp actually huddle together and dance together.

    So the probably 2 or 3 sexy shrimp? Not sure if I want the peps or not. I did like the Pederson Cleaner. It was pretty cool. Do you know how they are with other shrimp?

    I have never seen the pederson cleaner before, but he looks like an offshoot of the normal cleaner shrimp, so my guess is that he would be compatible with peppermint and sexy shrimp.

    Peppermint shrimp are good, they eat bad algae but are not in view much, so you will see them hiding often.

    I have a bunch of sexy shrimp and as im finding, they really arent quite reef safe. Mine are trying to eat some of my LPS corals so im always in the tank trying to beat them away from the coral.

    I've never seen him either til he was shown to me on this thread. Pretty neat though. And I GUESS I might do a pepermint shrimp. Lol. Just think they look kind of boring.


    Well that's no good! I guess it really is hit or miss. I love them though. They're too cute

    Well you don't need to worry too much about them being too boring since you'll almost never see it lol

    The nice thing about peppermint is that they're cheap. A peppermint shrimp costs like $5 and a skunk cleaner shrimp costs like $25.

    That CB was 25...not like I wanna banish Him to the mantis tank. I got him because all of my friends never had issues with them. But if he gets crazy he will become food.

    Grr, I am seriously hating you guys more and more.... a peppermint shrimp costs 30 dollars here and a reef cleaner costs 150... sigh... everything is a ripoff. The cheapest I got the RC is 130.

    If he's talking about AUS dollars then it's even more then $130 US dollars.
