Aquacultured by ORA The Peppermint Shrimp is a very popular shrimp because of its desire to eat nuisance glass anemones (Aiptasia). The body of the Peppermint shrimp is fairly transparent with red stripes that run parallel along their body. These Shrimp are very easy to care for and prefer to be kept in groups. They should be fed daily and will not harm other shrimp. Peppermint Shrimp grow very quickly and will molt regularily. These Shrimp have been known to spawn in aquariums. They are a great addition to any tank.Shrimp belong to the Class Crustacea and Order Decapoda, which is characterized by two pair of antennae, three body parts, and five pairs of legs. The head of Shrimp is connected to the thorax and covered by a shell called carapace. The antennae of Shrimp are normally long and thin and serve the Shrimp as extended eyes. Shrimp have highly developed abdomens which allows for quick movement. In order for Shrimp to grow they need to shed their exoskeleton, a process called "molting", which allows them to remove their restricting shell and begin a new one. Often times in the home aquarium Shrimp will leave this translucent shell in full view so it can serve as a distraction while the Shrimp finds a hiding place and allows its new shell to harden.
