Peppermint shrimp bad for zoo's?

I saw a post on here that said that peppermint shrimp eat Zooanthinds and sometimes polyps. Is there any truth to this accusation. I think that the pep's are awesome and I have never seen them do anything wrong.

We had some a while back, liked to be all over them never saw them eat them but I know it irritated them to the point where we had a problem and caused an infection on the zoos which then spread to our pipe organ coral, lost most of the polyps on the pipe organ But I really can't say for a fact that it caused it, I just know we had the hardest time trying to catch it to get rid of it.
