Peppermint shrimp okay with bubble tip anemone??

I'm trying to find my answer on the net but am getting conflicting advice.

Anybody here have problems putting a peppermint shrimp (or two) in with bubble tips? My lfs said no way can they be together.

I'm trying to combat the big aiptasia problem I have (along with kalkwasser injections).

If I get corals down the road (oh boy that would mean my tank is back under control - LOL), would the pepermint shrimp have to go?

Thanks again.

My tank:
72g bowfront
2 Bak-Pak II (replacing w/turboflotor this week
2 AquaClear 300s (replacing w/sump asap!)
50 lbs Live Rock (adding 40lbs after done curing)
1 PC light 4x65w
1 powerhead (not sure size) - will add 3 more

Current fish:
1 yellow tang
1 O clown
1 scooter blenny
2 tiny blue damsels
1 sea cucumber (large)
1 green brittle star (large)
2 bubble tip anemones
1 zebra hermit
10 or so turbo snails/margarita snails
10 or so red legged hermits
AIPTASIA to choke a horse. UGG.

Some people have no problems with peps others say that they eat there corals. its like anything else in the hobby, 50/50. Also it is not 100% that the peps will eat the aptasia. I know guys who bought peps just for that and they never thouched them. I would just nuke the aptasia instead of counting on peps.

they should be fine with bta, i got 4 in my tank and didn't touch my BTA however
it will grab the food from BTA, so if u want to target feed,make sure u stick the food all the way into the BTA
