I have a banded coral shrimp and a peppermint shrim with my octo. He refuses to eat these 2 shrimp but will devour anything else i throw in the tank. Anyone else have shrimp living in harmony with the octo?

Not so sure they are living in harmony! I have about 25 local shrimp I put in with Gimpy and he picks off the dum ones, but there are always about 5 that out smart him and live off the scraps of his meals.
