Peppermint Shrimp

Also known as Veined Shrimp and the Caribbean Cleaner Shrimp, is a staple in the marine aquarium industry. They are proficient eliminators of pesty Aiptasia making them highly useful and desirable. Featuring a sleek light pink body with small red stripes, the Peppermint Shrimp are completely reef safe and reclusive in nature. Found mostly in the Atlantic Ocean,  the Peppermint Shrimp has extended eyes and a pair on antennae that it uses to avoid predation. These shrimp will often completely shed their exoskeleton, called molting - this is not unusual behavior.
