    If you go the peppermint shrimp route, get at least two preferably more. They will be more likely to rid your tank of aiptasia in higher numbers.

    Be prepared for them to hide also, they usually go behind the rocks, not to be seen again until you move the tank around. They can however be very efficient at the job.
