The Fire Shrimp, Lysmata debelius, gets its name from its deep, blood-red coloration along with its brilliant white spots across is carapace and appendages. It is a cleaner shrimp that will remove necrotic tissue and parasites from fish. They will often form symbiotic relationships with these fish as the stuff they clean off of them make for a tasty meal. 
Fire Shrimp are best kept in tanks with plenty of live rock to hide in. They will often swim openly in the water column and will frequently be combing live rock and substrate as scavengers. They can breed easily in captivity. 

This guy is great he is cleaning up all my fish.
