The Gold Coral Banded Shrimp, Stenopus hispidus, is a beautiful colored variation of the traditional Coral Banded Shrimp. They are relatively rare in the aquarium trade and are supplied to Saltwaterfish.com in small quantities. They can be highly productive tank members as they are known to devour the pesky bristle worms. Given their voracious appetite,the Golden Coral Banded Shrimp will eat almost anything. More than one of these species should not be kept together unless they are a mated pair.
The Golden Coral Banded Shrimp will hang out among the rocks so they are best kept in tanks with plenty of rockwork. They will frequently lose their exoskeleton during a molting process as they grow. Golden Coral Bandeds can actually provide a little bit of a pinch to humans so be careful when handling. Overall, they are one of the most fascinating shrimps to watch as they are incredibly active, attractive, and proficient predators.
The Gold Coral Banded Shrimp is a beautiful addition to any aquarium. While mine is rather small and tends to stay hidden most of the time, he becomes more active when the lights go out. Coral Banded Shrimp are a great way to keep bristle worms at check, and I haven't seen one since I added mine.

He was pretty small and looked cute in the bag, once he got released I never saw him again. I never found his remains and I don't think anything in my tank could possibly eat him so I guess he is doing okay. Not much dies in my tank so hopefully he is happy.
