I have had good luck with Joe's, just having to make sure that none of the liquid touches any other corals.

As for the pepps, what I have noticed is that there is no more growth of aptasia in my tank. I always seem to have a few, and they are bigger which I don't think the shrimp is interested in them. But when I don't have a pepp in the tank, I notice several small ones growing. Figuring they are populating from the larger ones.

One of these days I'll go back with the Joe's juice, merely lazy most of the time

That sounds about right. Peppermint shrimp will eat (most of the time) new aiptasia. Once they get a bit bigger the pepps leave them alone.

So from what I've learned on here...peppermints should be added in the beginning if you plan to have a reef tank. After the cycle

The first peppermint shrimp I used it didn't work.

The second one ate them all.

Best of luck!
