The Saltwater Peppermint Shrimp (Lysmata wurdemanni) is also known as Veined Shrimp and Caribbean Cleaner Shrimp. It is a natural predator of the nuisance anemone- aiptasia, while some peppermint shrimp may have more of a taste for the anemone than others. It is a peaceful shrimp toward other tank mates, and can be kept with several of its kind successfully.

Peppermint shrimp
healthy looking, very active but I agree with a lot of other people. They are far more translucent than the ones at all my LFS but at 2.00 a piece vs 10 I'll take the lack of color vs price.

BOGO Shrimp
Both are VERY small. Not the size you get at the average LFS. However they did arrive alive and seem ok.

peppermint shrimp
I'm truly impressed. They really worked. I ordered 2 and didn't realize the buy one get one free offer.. so I got 4. But I really like them. No problems with others.
JR Nimeskern of Washington, NC
I bought Live Rock from a local person who had a ton of Aiptasia on them, I bought 6 Pep Shrimp from R2G. The Peps are shy and only come out when the lights are off but I have noticed that my Aiptasia problem has gone away. R2G has by far the BEST prices on these guys with there buy 1 get one free. You can not find a better deal they have offered anywhere!

Pep Shrimp
Got my order today and all seems to be good, was worried because the night time temps around here are still cold. 2 pepermint shrimp were lively and after acclimating for awhile they now are exploring my tank
Chris of Rockyface GA
These guys are funny to watch. They arrived healthy and very active.
Danielle Hardaman of Birmingham, Al
Great prices, hardy livestock!
Reefs2Go really has the best prices and the best livestock. I inherited an aiptasia issue on a client's tank from their previous maintenance company. I ordered several of these guys and they have done a great job. They have been in the tank for a month and are doing very well! I will keep coming back! I have received a DOA or two, but Reefs2Go always issues a speedy credit and their customer service can't be beat!

Saltwater Peppermint Shrimp

Peppermint Shrimp
These guys are great. After acclimation these guys started right in on my rocks.
Tangerine of Montana
Peppermint Shrimp
Ordered two peppermint shrimp and was sure they were both goners - no signs of life whatsoever. I went ahead with a slow drip acclimation, though, and about an hour and a half later one of them had turned 90 degrees... ten minutes later the other one had moved. Sure enough, in another half hour they were both squirming to get out of the bag. They've been in the tank for several hours now and seem to have completely taken to their new home. Note to potential buyers: ALWAYS ACCLIMATE!!!! The li...

Pepperment Shrimp
Love these little guys! They hop around the tank all day, looking for something to mess around with. I see them harassing snails, and pretty much anything else they can find, but they never hurt anything. Very amusing to watch.
Vicki of Ft. Myers, Florida
Peppermint Shrimp
These guys hide all day long but as soon as the moon lights come on in the tank they are out and about. Interesting to watch.
Keith Fightmaster of Kentucky
Peppermint Shrimp

JM of Madison, WI
great peppermint shrimp

Gail Russell of Waynesville NC
Peppermint shrimp
Ordered 2 BOGO free. They arrived healthy and were larger than I expected. Thanks!!
Adam N of Iowa
I bought 10 of these and put them in my tank hoping they would kill my aiptasia. They did it in the matter of two days. These seem to be more social than most peppermints ive seen and one even jumped on my hand and cleaned a piece of skin off of it. My cleaners do this all the time, but I never expected a peppermint to do it. A+!!!

Peppermint Shrimp Review
I ordered two of these fellows and both arrived alive and well. I put them in my tank and they seem to be doing just fine. Another great purchase from Reefs2Go and fast service.

We ordered 12 shrimp. They all arrived alive and well. They arrived early the next day and were in the tank within 14 hours of shipment. Would definitely order again.

Peppermint Shrimp
Ordered 6 (5) arrived alive and well. Only one didn't make it. I blame UPS and there not so great delivery times for my Overnight stuff. The rest have taken up house on the reef.
