I did have one of those pyscho peps before. I was trying to remove a sick, nearly dying fish with my hand and the big pep nearly attcked my finger trying to get at the fish.

Otherwise, true that they're afraid of their own shadows for the most part.

That sounds seriously odd for a pep. Do you know how to tell the difference between peppermint shrimp and camel shrimp? Some places will sell camels as peps, or even have camels mixed in with peps.

Even for a camel it's a pretty bold move to snatch another shrimp up, but more like them than peps.

They might not be peppermint. But who knows. I had one eat an oyter and a clam and my favorite acon. It took me 6 weeks to get him out. I dont know what he was but everyone said that can't happen. You should take him out. Once mine went "rogue" he was thirsty for the blood of anything he could get. I fed him to a scorpion fish. nice ending.

I think maybe the peppermint or camel shrimp wasn't being fed enough and got all predatory toward his tank mates or maybe it was a territory issue
