Bumble Bee Shrimp
These colorful tiny little shrimp are fun to watch. They will move around the tank exploring their new home. These little shrimp are related to the Harlequin shrimp. What this means is that that will prefer to nibble on tube feet of sea cucumbers. Unlike their cousins however, they will also eat meaty foods, such as frozen brine shrimp or prime reef.
Caribbean pistol shrimp make excellent scavengers. They will dig tunnels and deep caves. This could be damaging to delicate rock work causing structures to fall over. These shrimp are very well suited for a refugium or reef with minimal rock work. Don't be alarmed when you hear a very loud "POP", you may think you're tank has just exploded, but it's only the new shrimp.
