    Buffy the Badass runs the 75 gallon tank. But, we have glass anenomes so Daddy bought some peppermint shrimp. I told him I think Buffy is going to eat them! Will she? Even if I feed her bad ass 3 times a day, can I spare the Peppermint shrimp from getting munched?

    He also got a copper banded butterfly fish::) . Will Buffy the bicolor pseudochromis terrorize this lovely fish as well?

    Hi Buffy

    there is a very good chance of both of those things you are concerned about occuring
    IMO
    they are very aggresive fish and can often make life miserable for fish that are even a lot larger than they are ( size is no handicap for this species)

    what about chemical means of dealing with the aiptasia
    Aiptasia X and Joes Juice have both proven effective for a number of people
