The Peppermint Shrimp a very common shrimp in the marine industry just just due to its eye catching colouration of articulate red and white lines over its nearly transparent body, but because of its unusual behaviour of eating aiptasia.
This amazing shrimp must be housed correctly, and to do so it will require a aquarium with a live rock forming caves and holes to which the shrimp can hide in and also have open areas to scavenge in. Additionally, it is important to note that though this shrimp can also be successfully bred in the home aquarium in the correct conditions.
It is important to note that this shrimp will not tolerate any copper medications and it will mostly kill it. Furthermore, another thing people forget is that in order to keep these shrimps healthy they will require the correct levels of iodine within the water in order to promote molting.
This shrimp will usually be scavenging the sand bed and live rock for meaty bits of food. However, it should also be offered a diet of live, frozen and flaked foods.
