can't say about the filefish, but peppermint shrimp are excellent aiptasia munchers.

Can't do shrimp my Lunar and my Flame Hawk eat them too fast. My tank isn't established well enough for a sensitive butterfly. So any other thoughts are appreciated.

I also had a matted filefish. Mine picked at my snails when I bought them and dropped them in the tank. (only if they landed up-side down.) they are a pretty cool fish if you ask me.
