The Sexy Shrimp attained its name due to its peculiar body movements, as it sways its back end side to side and it walks or to impress others. Additionally, this shrimp also holds a unique appearance, as it is decorated in a solid dark red coat which is scattered with white polka dots. This is most certainly an amazing addition to all aquariums but most definitely those nano tanks that cannot hold larger shrimps or fish.
In order to house this shrimp correctly and achieve a comfortable environment for it to be able to thrive, it should almost always be kept in small groups of at least 3-4 in order to protect eachother. Additionally, this shrimp is very small and only grows to about 1.5 inches and therefore should not be housed with any predatory fish or large wrasse which may see it as food.
It is important to note that this shrimp will not tolerate any copper medications and it will mostly kill it. Furthermore, another thing people forget is that in order to keep these shrimps healthy they will require the correct levels of iodine within the water in order to promote molting (which should be once per month).
This shrimp will usually be scavenging the sand bed and live rock for meaty bits of food. However, it should also be offered a diet of live, frozen and flaked foods.
