    Peppermints! They are a type of "cleaner" but very seldom actually clean.

    The funny thing about peppermint shrimp is there are 3 different types. The ones that everyone want come from Florda area the aptasia, anthor one acts as a cleaner shrimp which will be a little pailer in color kind of rare too from fiji, and the last is just a pain in the *** which is a polyp/coral eater(can't rember were from). The sad part about this is alot of them got mix over the past year do to the big storms in the florda area. Tanks getting broken and pushed out to sea or asses dumping them in the ocean. So now a shrimp that use to be safe could be a hybread of the different peppermints. So to answer the question posted at the top it peppermint but could be one of three.
    Of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most.

    I would say yes. With peppermints I am very careful who i get them from. I only get them from two direct places because of what I list above. If they are picking at your polyps then more often then not they are going to kill all polyps unless the polyps have some toxicins to them.
