There kinda boring. I have three. Try a couple cleaner shrimp next time you add shrimp. The will clean your arm, and are very active.

most peppermints are shy at first. Give them a week or 2 to come out more in the day

Mine has been in the tank for almost a month now and he's really getting adventurous. He'll come out with everyone else when food is put into the tank. The bottom of my tank is as fun to watch at feeding time as the water column. For the most part though he hangs under the rocks just swaying back and forth. I did get to watch him molt though. That was interesting!

The cleaner shrimp are by far more fun to watch though I have yet to get close enough to one for him to offer to clean my arm!
