What's the best way to tell a camel back from a peppermint shrimp?

Joes Juice all the way. Peppermint shrimp are a hit or miss...mostly a miss in my experience.

I have success in my DT with peppermints. No Aptasia in the DT at all but I do have some in the sump. Only difference is I keep a pack of peppermints in the DT. Again, hit or miss. As far as peppermints eating coral I've never seen it. However I have seen them eating coral that is dying, as that is their job, cleaning up. I believe many people confuse them between eating healthy coral and cleaning up decomposing tissue off of dying coral.
