Do cleaner shrimp eat Peppermints?

OK, I hope you can guess I am not worried about my cleaner shrimp's breathe, but rather my other shrimp. I have three skunk cleaner shrimp in a 175 and have rarely seen any of my peps since I added them. There is one tiny pep that pops out, but all the rest are MIA. why can't shrimp just get along?

Same here with minor problems. They can be territorial sometimes and will chase off another shrimp but I have never seen one hurt another.

More than likely if you just added them they molted and are hiding from view. They usually are kept in tanks at the lfs with very little cover and will put off molting as long as they can until they feel like they can hide out for awhile. All my shrimp hid for the first couple of months but now freely roam the tank during the day

They hide very well and won’t be found if they don’t want to be and typically molt once a month or more.
