Shrimp-y questions

I am patiently (ya right) waiting for a pistol shrimp & gobie to show up at one of my LFS... but I have an aptasia problem. Will a peppermint shrimp bother the symbiosis? Would a peppermint shrimp be to much with a high finned red banded gobie and pistol shrimp?
What do I feed the shrimp of either species? Are there reliable dry feed to make up the main diet?

Right now I am afraid I will finally find the right shrimp and not know what to feed it! I want to have some on hand prior to purchase.

Just trying to not kill my fish!

Peps are low maintainence, easy to care for. They will generally just clean up what the other animals would miss and get along with just about anything.
In a 6 gallon since you are quite limited, I would try a physical or a slight chemical means to removing them first. A bit of Joes juice should do the trick.
