The peps will eat the aptasia and fish food that makes it to the bottom or the rocks. They are reef friendly. I'd go with the six peps for now. I put 10 in my 75. Never seen aptasia in 11 months.

Yur tank did finish cyling, right? Sounds like time for a few b/g chromis, peps, and a small cleaning crew. What's your outlook for inhabitants? If certain kinds of fish, bye, bye peps anyway.

A new rock of zoas I bought from a store I usually don't go to had two little (to tiny for me to see in the store) aptaisia on it..... I think I am going to go pick up a couple peppermint shrimp today. The tank they are going in is a 20 gallon. How many should I go and pick up? Also, after the aptaisia problem is over, what do I feed these little guys?

What's your outlook for inhabitants
Lots of shrooms (big Ricordia fan), zoos and a leather or two. just smaller reef fish. Added my first fish 1 1/2 weeks ago, Lyretail Anthia (F), and I must say it it the most beautiful fish I have ever seen (gallery shot). Will be getting another this week to keep her company. Pseudos and cardinals on the list as well.

Let's get a line wet!
