My peppermints live peacefully with a cleaner as well. But cleaners aren't as docile as everyone claims. Mine eats small nassarius snails on occasion. And no, they're not dead before he eats them. I need to buy a handful occasionally for him to snack on. I watch him sift thru sand and pull them up fm time to time. He's got a technique that is interesting to watch. And he does it when the Luna lights r on. I even have a pic but it's not a great 1. Had to use flash on my camera phone. This goes against everything I have ever heard or read

I don't know if you can do this by yourself or not but get a small led light and shine it in your tank and snap a picture it is amazing how well they turn out.

cleaner shrimp won't eat anything that's not failing.

First I heard of a killing cleaner fish not totally surprised. I saw an anemone eat a clown it was hosting last week.

For the apstasia, is it on rock that can be removed? I had it once, I kept the rock outside for a month. After I put it back in I never saw the apstasia again.

I have a flame and it has never bothered my peppermint shrimp. Hawk was the only survivor and was in tank for months after the mystery deaths. Added peppermints and have never had an issue. Doesn't even pay attention to them.
