The Blue Boxer Shrimp has a blue body, while the chelae and abdomen have red and sometimes white and red bands. These shrimp are ideal for any size invertebrate or reef aquarium, and will perform a cleaning function picking parasites and dead tissue from fish. Blue Boxer Shrimp are also effective bristleworm hunters in the reef aquarium, helping to keep the population of these pests under control.

The Blue Boxer Coral Shrimp should be kept singly in smaller aquariums. It is relatively hardy, but must be acclimated slowly to avoid any salinity and/or pH shock.

They are intolerant of high nitrates or copper levels, and iodine levels in the water must be correct to promote proper molting.

The Blue Boxer Coral Shrimp feeds on parasites, dead tissue removed from fish, and other tiny organisms. In the home aquarium, it will accept most flaked, pellet and frozen foods, plankton, and meaty foods.
