Mine's eaten all of mine. It took it a couple of days to decide to roam the tank but once it did, it made short work of it all. There was one large one that it took its time with (took several days for it to disappear, but it got noticably smaller every day). There's another little one that I found when I moved my rocks around the other day, but I'm sure it won't last for long.

"They" say that there's a 50/50 chance that you'll get a peppermint who's interested in eating aptasia. Hopefully you got one that finds the stuff a delicasy.

Mine sits behind a piece of rock, and does nothing. Once in awhile I see him under that rock swaying, but thats it. He did successfully molt the other day so that's good news.

50/50 chance eh? hmmmm. well ill give this guy a few days to settle in and get his apetite back and see what he does. if he still does nothing, maybe i'll just go with "joe's juice" anyone know how that stuff works and if its dangerous to use around other corals? and how do you stick it with a needle? mine suck back into the rock if i touch them.

ok, so i covered my flashlight with plastic wrap that i colored red with a marker last night in hopes of seeing any movement whatsoever, and to my surprise.... my shrimp was a psycho! he was all over the place! prancing around the sand scurring up the glass and doing the back stroke through the current the PH makes. he was so fast! he looked like he was having the time of his life! and this morning i noticed that some of my aptasia looks a bit thinner too! so maye he does like it!

I haven't seen mine in the front of the tank. They're either in a hole in my LR or roaming around the back where I can barely see them. I had them since Xmas eve.

ok, so i just got home from the LFS, and realized why my shrimp isn't eating my aiptasia.... its because he's a stupid camel shrimp! i even asked the guy when he picked him out, i said, hang on a second that doesn't look like a pep. shrimp, but the moron fed me some stupid line about "oh he just looks lighter cause he just molted". i guess it's my fault for believing him though. still makes me mad. i'm gonna try and take him back tomorrow and see if they'll swap him for a pep. what do i do with him if they won't though? i hear that camel's are bad and they eat corals, is that true? ps, i got my first fish yesterday, 2 baby percs they're so cute! only about 5 weeks old!
