Yep

I have one peppermint shrimp for five days now and this pest is still here. Is it a hit or a miss. Should I get another one? My tank is 10 gallon.

Just nuke it with boiling water or aiptasia x

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Yup, take the rock out and kill it before it pop for more if you only have 1, don't wait for the shrimp.

Does it retreat into a hole if you touch it? I have had success using superglue to seal small ones into holes. They dont make it out! :D

I never tried touching it but I've seen it retreating to its hole. I haven't seen it for couple days. Maybe the shrimp ate it. Can it grow on the sand or only on rocks?

I haven't had to deal with it that much, but from what I have heard, it will grow on just about anything (glass, equipment, etc.)
