Banded Coral Shrimp

Price: $19.00



Banded Coral Shrimp.

The Banded Coral Shrimp is perhaps the most widely distributed shrimp in the sea. It usually hangs upside-down in caves or crevices, with only its antennae emerging from the hole. While molting, it will often hide from sight for 1-2 days in the rocks of the reef.
It is relatively hardy, but must be acclimated slowly to avoid any salinity and/or pH shock. Breeding the Banded Coral Shrimp is usually not successful. Larvae are generally destroyed by filtration and skimming.
The Banded Coral Shrimp is a scavenger. In the home aquarium, it will accept most flaked and frozen foods.
