I found the ones I kill are gone for good, that doesn't mean there's not more floating around the tank. At least they're really easy to take care of when I find them.

I have used it. You have to go slow and sort of feed it to them. 90% will die off, but you will have to retreat the stubern ones. It's just Kalk so a little won't hurt your water parameters.

there's only one type of peppermint shrimp, you might be thinking of a camel shrimp, which don't eat aiptasia at all.

peps don't have white in them, try googling the difference between the two
