    Peppermint shrimp are reef safe and a good addition to your cleanup crew. I don't know anything about the white glove shrimp. I also don't know if any of your other fish will eat the shrimp. But you can put them in your sump. As for cost peppermints go for around $8 each here.

    Sounds like they're more temperate shrimp, eat pods and are the equivalent of pods as food for a fish, like ghost shrimp. I would'nt pay hardly anything for them. As for peppermints, they go for around $5-7 at stores around here, so I would probably pay $15-20 for the lot, but no more.

    Dont think I will buy them he wants 150 bucks for the lot. I know that the peppermint do sell for around 40 to 60 here and I don't want to spend that money and turn it into expensive fish food.
    lol
    I think I will just get the red banded mating pair I saw yesterday, They were $110 a pair and looked really nice to boot.
    Thanks all .

    $20 is cheap, other LFS sell them for $25-35. Box of salt (Reef Crystals) is $55, or $75 at the expensive stores.

    somr stuff you can get shipped for free, depends on how much you spend, nothing real heavy though, and nothing live. my son lives in sudbury which is the closest place. so i go and visit and use that as an excuse to go shopping
