The Bumblebee Shrimp are small shrimp only attaining a maximum size of 2.5cm. Their body is yellow or white in coloration with black stripes giving them a similar appearance to a bumblebee. The legs and tail may also have orange markings. These shrimp are similar to Harlequin shrimp and feed upon the tube feet of echinoderms.

The Bumblebee Shrimp is best kept as pairs in a small nano aquarium with moderate light to accommodate easy viewing. The Bumblebee Shrimp will feed upon the tube feet of echinoderms, but do not require them for survival. Offer them pieces of frozen meaty foods such as brine or mysis shrimp, cockle, or small pieces of fish. They should be offered these foods daily.

Due to the Bumblebee Shrimps small size, care should be taken when introducing them into the aquarium as there is a potential that other organisms may consume them.

They cannot tolerate copper or high nitrates, and iodine levels must be correct and maintained to ensure proper molting.
