I got a few shrimp about I thought I was getting peppermint shrimp but I think I got camelback shrimp. I am not really sure just yet but I am gonna try to get a better look at them. I haven't noticed any coral being damaged or anything like that, but I want to know the best way to catch them or what I can get that will eat them? I hope I am they are not camelback that would really be bad.

they are very similar looking. if its peppermint shrimp it will be red with yellowish white markings. if its camel it will be white and red markings. i wish i could tell you there was some easy way to catch it if its not the one you want, but i dont think there is.

If I have to tear it down the get the little guys I will I just want to make sure I got the right shrimp. I don't really have to much coral in the tank but I don't want to get the tank going them have them destroy my corals. I will try to get a pic to let you guys see what they are tonight. I am pretty sure they have white and red on them, I just can't remember if they have the hump.

I paid 18 for both of them. I know they haven't touched the coral since they were in the tank. I am pretty sure that there is white on the shrimp. Could it be my light? I hope it is.

They were camelback shrimp I got them out today. I had to tear down the whole tank to get to them but I got them. The fish store even gave me peppermint shrimp when I told them what had happen. Took me a long time to catch them but I did a 70-80% water change and moved some rock. I am getting my new lighting this week I can't wait. :D
