Coral Banded Shrimp are very popular among reefkeepers due to their exquisite coloring and active nature.
They are a beautiful addition to the reef with candycane striped bodies, multiple pairs of bright white antennae, and 3 pairs of miniature claws.
They are very active and enjoy lots of live rock to scour for detritus, and will hunt and kill pest bristle worms.
They are also active "cleaner shrimp". Fish will swim close and allow the shrimp to pick parasites from the flesh.
They will also feed on uneaten fish food that falls to the bottom such as frozen foods, pellet and flake.
They are reef-safe and only one should be kept per tank, unless they are a confirmed mated pair in which case the pair can be kept in the same tank.
Hardy, but must be acclimated slowly to avoid any salinity and/or pH shock.
Food and Diet:
It feeds by grazing on algae and anything it can find. will take bits of any food that is added. supplemental feeding not required.
Recommended Minimum tank size: 1 gallon or larger
