With its vibrant colors and playful behavior, the Sexy Shrimp is sure to become a highlight in your underwater world.

Key Features:

2. Striking Appearance: This shrimp features a translucent body adorned with bright white spots and a vivid red hue, making it a visually appealing addition to your marine setup.

3. Symbiotic Relationships: Sexy Shrimps often form symbiotic relationships with anemones and corals, providing mutual benefits and enhancing the overall health and aesthetic of the tank.

4. Small and Peaceful: Reaching a maximum size of just about 1 inch (2.5 cm), the Sexy Shrimp is peaceful and can coexist with other small, non-aggressive tank mates.

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Size: A minimum tank size of 10 gallons is recommended. Due to its small size, the Sexy Shrimp is also ideal for nano reef tanks.

  • Diet: The Sexy Shrimp is an omnivore and should be fed a varied diet consisting of finely chopped meaty foods, high-quality marine pellets, and flake foods. They will also feed on detritus and small invertebrates in the tank.

  • Aquarium Setup: Provide a well-decorated tank with live rock, corals, and anemones to offer ample hiding spots and grazing areas. The presence of anemones or large-polyped stony corals enhances their natural behavior.

  • Tank Compatibility: Suitable for reef tanks with other small, peaceful inhabitants. Avoid housing with aggressive fish or larger invertebrates that may prey on the shrimp.

  • Reef Safe: The Sexy Shrimp is reef safe and will not harm corals, making it a perfect addition to reef aquariums.
