I think that once the peppermint shrimp started on him, the exposed flesh became an interest for the hermits

Don't know if it's dead or not. I put it in a container with an airstone. Well see what happens......

Peppermint shrimp are known to attach tube worms. If you are wanting to get rid of him find someone with a fuge I know mine is full of aptasia. I have a peppermint in the display tank and he doesn't bother anything but I did have one in another tank that went after my feather duster. It all depends on the shrimp if it will eat aptiasia or feather dusters.

Sorry it took so long to get back.. After putting the feather duster in a container with a bubbler it came back to life in a few hours. I placed it back in the tank for the night but placed it in the rockwork. I woke up in the morning to find it there was Just a small piece of it left in the sand and the hermits were finishing it off. The next morning I found the peppermint dead... I have no idea how this would have happened but I'm not terribly concerned either. Guess karma caught up with him!
