Peppermint shrimp will not eat those trees, they are to big for even them.
And the rule of thumb for SW is out the window. LR does take up a good portion of the tank, yes. But you have to look at swim room for the fish and how big are they going to get. I have only 7 fish in my 240g tank, and my tank does not look empty by any means. BIG FISH.
