Just make sure your careful with your fish and coral, they like to snack on them once in a while.

My peppermint ate all but 3 big ones. I check on him frequently and have not seen him doing a thing other than hide. My night time checks prove he is active but he must like to eat alone. Anyhow the aptasia are gone.
