    Hi there.

    Does anyone have an Aptasia eating file fish or maybe a peppermint shrimp for sale. I need to do something with the aptasia in my tank, it's a real head ache.

    Thank you.

    Regards.

    Where is your Brother located, and what would he want for the fish?

    Personally, File fish are never 100% reef safe, and sometimes don't even touch your aiptasia. I had one that decimated my frog spawn. Peppermints are pathetic and only hunt in packs of ten or more. Get yourself a feeding Cobberband, I have owned a about four in my life and all have been 100% effective and are totally reef safe.
