The Gold Coral Banded Shrimp is a beautifully colored version of the Coral Banded Shrimp. The only difference between the two is the gold coloring. They are a fairly rare item in the aquarium industry and are supplied to in small quantities and size. They have a rough texture to their exoskeleton and long white antennae. They enjoy being in full view and will spend the day looking for food -- specifically their desire to eat bristle worms. They accept all foods. Coral Banded Shrimp have a vigorous appetite and should be fed daily. They desire lots of rockwork to cruise around and perch on and more than one cannot be kept in the same aquarium, unless it is a mated pair. Shrimp belong to the Class Crustacea and Order Decapoda, which is characterized by two pair of antennae, three body parts, and five pairs of legs. The head of Shrimp is connected to the thorax and covered by a shell called carapace. The antennae of Shrimp are normally long and thin and serve the Shrimp as extended eyes. Shrimp have highly developed abdomens which allows for quick movement. In order for Shrimp to grow they need to shed their exoskeleton, a process called "molting", which allows them to remove their restricting shell and begin a new one. Often times in the home aquarium Shrimp will leave this translucent shell in full view so it can serve as a distraction while the Shrimp finds a hiding place and allows its new shell to harden.
