The Reef Safe Coral Banded shrimp is a popular shrimp amongst the reef hobby and should be housed in an aquarium with adequate room to roam with lots of rockwork and crevices where they can hide. They should be kept singularly or as a true mated pair, they will not tolerate others of the same species. The Coral Banded shrimp will eat meaty pieces of uneaten food as well as eat supplements of flake and frozen foods, plankton, and other meaty items. They are known to be a great hunter of bristle worms, and may help to reduce populations of the pest in a reef aquarium.
