I had some peppermint shrimp that were constantly eating my mushrooms and tore a hole in my bubble coral. I got rid of them and all my problems went away. I warned the friend who gave them a home, but he really liked them at first. Eventually they caused too many problems for him and he was able to capture 2 and put them in his sump, the other two were impossible to catch. They were proven trouble makers
. My advise is, get rid of em. If they are a problem now, they will only get worse. Also, you will find yourself buying more corals, and possibly more destruction will ensue. I know it sux, I loved my shrimp and could not imagine if I had to give up my cleaner, but those poor corals...
