Hmm I never considered peppermints to be "ornamental", I thought theymeant like sexy shrimp and small guys. Some of the shrimp that died were quite big, something was just killing them and not eating them, for fun. yuch... I would find them snapped in half in the tank on the sandbed. i also suspected the pistol shrimp but i don't think he comes out enough to be the guilty party. But who knows. i never will, and now I can't put shrimp in my tank. it sucks. I have all this room for them and cant have em. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yep, it could have also been the Pistol. That's unfortunate, I think everything should get along, LOL.

Thank you! The shrimp no one ever gets to see is the Peppermint. Maybe if I get another Peppermint he will come out. LOL, I might, but not anytime soon. My LFS always has tons of Peppermints though, at least I know where to get one when/if I decide to buy one.

I know, they should be more social! LOL. We should take our shrimp to a "playgroup" to work on their social skills.

I have a feeling that mine are antisocial because I have a Longnose Hawkfish that perches and watches them when they come out during feeding. He wouldn't hurt a fly, but if I were a shrimp, I wouldn't take the risk. Even I am afraid of putting my hand in the tank... Lol

At least you don't have a fish that wants to attack you. LOL, my Orange Ocellaris Clownfish hates me!
