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.
