Common name: Pacific white-striped cleaner
shrimp. One of the most common shrimps
found in marine aquariums. Will reach a maximum (body) length
of approximately 5 cm. These shrimps can be kept in small
groups and will get along with most other aquarium residents.
Care should be taken not to include invertebrate eating fish
in such a tank (like Pterois volitans). Perfect addition to any reef aquarium which
should include enough hiding places. Likes to clean a large
number of other fish including morays - an action seen in
the aquarium, too. Will accept a variety of frozen and dry
foods. Questionable for marine fish - only tanks unless
extensive rocky formations are present.
