I do not believe they are bad, infact I believe they are desirable if you have an anenome. If we are taking about the same creature around here they sell for $8-15. They will usually form a symbiotic relationship with an anenome which may be why is is hanging around your coral. How did you come buy one for food?

Does your look anything like this?

I have also seen them more transparent.

Is this your shrimp? The colors may not be exact but is this close?

As far as I know they are safe.
