Peppermint Shrimp

Peppermint Shrimp

A very hardy shrimp, the Peppermint Shrimp eats almost anything and everything given to it and is known to feed on aiptasia anemones as well as clean parasites from fish. This shrimp will tolerate other types of shrimp, but is usually found in close vicinity of its own kind. Many types of hiding places are a necessity especially during molting. As with all shrimps, drip-acclimation is highly recommended due to their sensitivity to changes in water parameters. Should have proper iodine levels to help with proper molting. Will not tolerate copper nor high levels of nitrates.
