Scientific name - Urocaridella sp.

Family – Palaemonidae

Common name – Anemone Shrimp

Range - Indo-Pacific

Max Size – 1 in (2.5 cm)

Care Level – Easy

Temperament – Peaceful

Foods and feeding – This shrimp will scavenge food from the aquarium, but will appreciate small treats of meaty bits.

Supplements - Calcium, Magnesium, Iodine, Trace Elements

Aquarium suitability -

Reef compatibility – yes

Captive care – In the wild these shrimp are cleaner shrimp, but this symbiotic relationship has not been seen in the home aquarium. They do best as a group in a small tank with lots of rubble with inhabitants that wont eat them. They fun additions to a nano tank, but will require searching to find because of their almost translucent bodies. Like all invertebrates, they are extremely sensitive to nitrates and copper, and should only be kept in aquariums with pristine water conditions.
