    I have some troubles with the aiptasia. Bought 4 peppermint shrimps but they did not eat it at all. So I decided to inject aiptasia with kalkwasser. Turn off all the pumps and powerheads and injected aiptasia. After couple minutes peppermint shrimps climb to aiptasia and start eating it. Will they die also? Maybe before they have not eating those because the current is too strong in my tank?

    Then you must have a very strong current in your tank. Hope they don't die and glad they are eating the aiptasia.

    So far they still alive. Aiptasia almost gone. I have like 4 of them in the tank but I will not kill it with kalkwasser until more grows. I want to make sure shrimps have something to eat.

    I wouldn't worry about the shrimp getting enough to eat, they are scavengers and will find food in the tank.
