I just recently acquired an electric green carpet anemone. He aclimated just fine, and looks beautiful. As soon as I added him to the main tank, the 3 peppermint shrimp I have jumped on him like flies on This portion of your post has been edited, it is in violation of the User Agreement.

! One, in particular, the largest, keeps crawling all over him. This is the first full day in the main tank for the anemome. I just noticed the shrimp in the middle of the anemone, and one of the green tips from the anemone on the shrimp's claws. Is he harming my anemone or is it more symbiotic?
This sucks anyway, because I got the shrimp for the aiptasias-which I had to remove myself anyway and I got the carpet anemone for my 2 oscillaris clowns - that are very curious about him, but I think the shrimp is keeping them away. Should I just get rid of the shrimp?
