The Gold Boxer Shrimp has a goledn yellow body, white chelae, and a red and white banded abdomen. Members of the Stenopodidae family are called Boxing Shrimp because of their large pinchers on their third set of legs. They often hold these pinchers erect, giving the appearance of a boxer ready to fight. Sufficient room should be provided in the tank to allow the Gold Boxer Shrimp to move without its long antennae touching neighboring corals or anemones.

The Gold Boxer Shrimp must be kept singly, or as a true mated pair, being intolerant of others of the same species. It may also harass other smaller shrimp of different species. It is relatively hardy, but must be acclimated slowly using the Drip Method to avoid any salinity and/or pH shock.

It is intolerant of high nitrates or copper levels, but iodine levels in the water must be correct to promote proper molting.

In the wild, the Gold Boxer 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. Boxer Shrimp are also effective bristleworm hunters in the reef aquarium, helping to keep the population of these pests under control.
