Peppermint Shrimp eating Frogspawn?
Well I have had nice frogspawn in my tank for about a month, and I just recently purchased a Peppermint shrimp to help battle some apitasia growth, and to just look pretty
About 2 days ago, I was watching the shrimp "clean" off a rock near the frogspawn, when suddenly the shrimp swam up near the underside of the frogspawn and attacked it and popped one of the tenticles! I immediatly chased the shrimp away, and he has left the frogspawn along since. Since I had the frogspawn in the tank first, I know that the issue cant be territoral, because the shrimp is the new guy. I really dont want to remove anything if I dont have to, but if the shrimp continues to harass this great coral, I see no other option but to remove the shrimp. Any advice or possible explinations to this behavior would be awesome!
