    Hi,
    I just want to bump this up again.
    I've tried to get hold of some of these guys - but no luck.

    So now I'll try the shrimps root.

    Any sponsor that can help me to get some Aptiasia eating Peppermint shrimps - please let me know!
    I need enough shrimps for a 2meter tank. (+- 900 liter tank).

    OR - if you can get me some Nudi's - that will be great!

    ps (I've tried file fish before - it chowed my zoas - so don't wanna go that route again.)

    the Shrimps do work, what I have seen from personal experience is that they need to go into a sump or confined area where they don't have access to any other food but the aptasia, otherwise they will eat the other food before they eat the aptaisa, so basically what worked is piece by piece, rock by rock was put into the sump for a few days for them to clear the aptasia on the rock and then from there put it back into the display tank.

    What else do they eat?
    I've got a 2m tank - so that size should be fine.. (I think).

    Just don't want to get one and it starts to chow on my corals. (Want to get a Nemmie later on - will it eat that?)

    Ok - Any sponsor - do you have any that I can put in marine tank?
    I don't want to setup a brackish tank first.

    The Scat should be fed mainly vegetable based foods with meaty foods offered on occasion. Feed dried seaweed, lettuce, algae, quality flake food and occasionally brine shrimp.

    should be good

    Last I saw was at a pet shop at the Ranburg Waterfront, they are however not a sponsor, so hopefully one of the sponsors have.

    from what I am reading is that they are a bit of a hit or a miss in terms of coral munchers.

    My scat enjoys flakes, nori and everything else I feed in my tank. He never touched any of my corals or my nennie except when finding any left over flake's etc. Scats are known to be vacuum cleaners of the tank even eating fish poo and best of all aiptasia. I am sure most LFS can get them and acclimatize them for you and they are cheap, all and all a good deal.
