These guys are true peppermint shrimp. Lysmata wurdemanni, not camel shrimp that look similar but bother corals. Peppermint are reef safe and sought after for their work on the Aptasia anemone, which plagues many reef tanks. They will not always eat them, but you have a 90% chance they'll take care of the problem, especially smaller aptasia. They are also easy to breed, getting 2 peppermint shrimp is an automatic match and they'll have baby larvae which feeds the corals in the tank. They also eat left over food and detritus. Recommend 2 per 50 gallons, more if you have a lot of aptasia.
