The coral banded shrimp, also know as the "boxing Shrimp" makes a great addition to most reef aquarium settings. They are peaceful towards fish, corals, and most other invertebrates. They can however be semi-aggressive with other coral banded shrimp or smaller shrimp species that threaten where they are living. They are a hardy species of shrimp and make a nice addition to the aquarium as a scavenger that will look for any uneaten meaty foods and will in most cases accept prepared food in your aquarium. They cannot handle copper or high nitrate levels in an aquarium, and require correct iodine levels in order to ensure proper molting.
All invertebrates have an arrive alive guarantee.
Due to variations within species, your item may not look identical to the image.
*Please note that we cannot guarantee the shrimp contained within the pack will have both claws. They will have at least one and will grow back the missing one upon their next molt.*
