The Sexy Shrimp is named aptly for its provocative waving motion made with its abdomen. With its beautiful coloration and stunning pattern, it makes a brilliant addition to any nano aquarium. Due to its petite measurement, the Sexy Shrimp often becomes an easy snack for most large fishes and should never be kept along with the basslets, or any other large carnivores, instead the Sexy Shrimp does well with pygmy angels. It generally hosts on Polyp corals and anemones, and is considered reef safe. The Sexy Shrimp should be kept in a tank not less than 5 gallons, and thrives well in a temperature range of 72-82 degree Fahrenheit. It is mostly considered reef safe as it doesn?t bother corals and instead host on it. On acclimatizing in the nano aquarium, the Sexy Shrimp looks for shelter in the anemones and if it?s not present they host on corals such as mushroom polyps, green star polyps, and clove polyps. The Sexy Shrimp is a very social organism and love to stay in groups. Its feeding habit is as omnivores and eats anything meaty and some greens. It is very easy to handle and care, as it is cheap to feed and can get along well with other tank mates. Males are generally smaller with single white tripe on their abdomen, and females are larger with a round abdomen area with broken white stripe unlike males. That is why pairing is quite easy and simple and this explains successful breeding in captivity by many hobbyists.

These cute little Sexy Shrimp prefer to live in an Anemone.They should be supplied with ample rockwork in which to hide and be fed on a regular basis.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.Photo by Saltwaterfish.com member, Bronco300: Luke Plank
