Tank at 2 1/2 months

Here's my tank at 2 1/2 months.... Have a small aptasia problem but just put 15 peppermint shrimp in so we'll see how that works out...

They may or may not eat the aips, it's hit or miss

Ive heard of all sorts of injections but the easiest and cheapest seemed to be an injection of hot water, and I would suggest a Midas blenny, because I  them

Aptasia-x is what I'm currently using to battle the little suckers. You use a syringe and inject a liquid, that when it hits the saltwater turns to a glue-like substance, into the mouth of the aptasia. Works immediately, is safe for the rest of your tank, and is borderline fun to do lol. As far as the shrimp, according to my lfs (who is actually quite knowledgeable and not just trying to sell stuff) and what I've found, the peppermint shrimp is imported from the atlantic or pacific and its the atlantic peppermint shrimp that eats them. Though some are still better than others at the job.

Once they eat it all they are usually a hard fish to keep because they are finicky eaters and sometimes won't take to prepared foods

I had a small aiptasia problem in my 15 gallon nano, got a one peppermint shrimp and within 2 days I couldn't find any aiptasia and now he seems to eat anything I put in the tank from mysis to flake food, maybe I just got lucky, but my experience with a peppermint shrimp was great.
