Will Camel shrimps eat Aiptasia ???

LFS just got back from his supplier, and I asked to get soem peppermints for me, well Camels came back in the bag... I don' thave any corals in the tank that I can see... I don't think alot of corals came on the live rocks from liverocks.com... Kinda miffed about the whole thing but I needed alge control and something else in the tank... I got 4 of em for 25 didn't think it was too too bad...

Thanks !
Rich

Camel shrimp will not eat aiptasia, they will eat polyps and some other corals.

Or should I just take these guys back now and tell them I want peppermints? Do these guys eat any stuff I want them to like alge etc..?

They will scavenge, but I doubt they will do much with algae, but then again neither will peppermints. If you plan on having a reef tank, I would remove them, if it's just gonna be a FOWLR, then they should be fine.
