joes juice can be difficult to feed...peppermint shrimp is a guaranteed way to get rod of it.

Peppermint shrimp are really cool and won't bother your corals. I've heard of using them for apstasia but, I've read on here that they only eat the small ones. Good luck.

Yup, peps are the way to go. Also its nice to have another peacful animal in your system. As long as you don't have any fish that will eat them. 8O
