I read an article in Coral Magazine recently that said there are 2 different species of shrimp sold as Peppermint Shrimp. The pictures looked nearly identical. One eats aiptasia and the other does not, which is why you are best to purchase a small group of these shrimp to ensure you actually get some of the aiptasia eating species in your purchase.
