Red face I want to get a shrimp

I am looking at getting a shrimp (not sure why; just because). I have a few of those small weed anemones . I do not want to spend a fortune; but I would like a nice hardy good looking shrimp.

Any advise????

If you are talking about aptiasia or glass anemone sometimes peppermint shrimp will eat them, they cost about $7 around here. It is a hit or miss type thing with the natural approach but I have had good luck with it. They do better in groups of 2 or 3 to handle the aptiasia. They are a very light bioload.

Yeah i was just gona say. The peppermint shrimp would be a good idea. Like joy said its not always guaranteed that the shrimp will eat the aptasia, but heck, its worth it. Plus.. they look awesome in a tank lol.

I would suggest a peppermint shrimp as well. They might eat your aptiasia which is great. But the more expensive shrimp i would only put into a mature tank.

That's what happens when you live on the other side of the planet.
