Pep shrimp

I just purchased two peppermint shrimp for the sole reason of tearing up some aiptasia. Are there any other concerns when dealing with these shrimp?

Nope, just acclimate them and hope they do the trick. Mine never did so I used hot lemon juice and a syringe. Took some time but I won the battle and ended up with 3 peppermint shrimp

That's what someone had mentioned here on the site so I tried it. I boiled lemon juice and let it cool just a bit. Filled a syringe with it and went to war!

That X stuff they sell didn't do anything but tick it off! I think it just didn't like me.
