Frogspawn and Peppermints

Has anyone had any problems with peppermint shrimp attacking their frogspawn? I witnessed my new frogspawn being picked at by one of my peppermints.

Not a frogspawn, but my peps used to pick at my zoos all the time. I used to think they were eating them, but they were just cleaning them. Are you sure it just wasn't stealing food? Heh.

None at all. My frogspawn hosts my O. clowns and the pepermint set up their camp in the rocks.

Just check as DT said and make sure they aren`t just cleaning or picking out some food or aptisia between them. I`ve never had a problem either.

I could see pieces of the frogspawn coming off and floating around the tank.
