A rare sight for one of my peppermints to be out in the daylight to inspect the new Turbinaria I got from Amo Manik

Seems to be settling in well, some  of the polpys have opened.
Once it grows a bit more it should look nice as the polpys have blue around the edge.

They have all come out wonderfully thank you, I’ve popped the pics in my tank thread.

I’d like to add a Harlequin shrimp. Does anyone know if they are compatible with Peppermints?

Should be fine... But harlequin shrimps diet is starfish.
Unless you can get a constant supply of asternia starfish or are prepared to but star fish to feed I personally wouldn't bother.

Thanks, I remove 5 per day from my main tank and have tonnes of them in the copepod tank so should be okay but I’ll have a bit more of a read up to see what their consumption rate is. I think it’s a beautiful, interesting shrimp and keeping on top of the asterina is a bonus for me.

Defiantly nice looking shrimp, I had hundreds of asternia in my tank and one cleared them within 4 weeks

Oh then you’re right not a good idea the poor thing would starve I wouldn’t be able to keep up at that rate.

Some people buy a sand shifting star fish and feed a leg every few days, but I couldn't do it
