The Yellow Crystal Shrimp are nearly transparent as a defense, the Yellow Crystal Shrimp's body features scattered red and yellow spots, with a bright yellow line extending from the anterior end to its tail, where it splits into two stripes. In its natural environment, the Yellow Crystal Shrimp lives in groups in small caves and crevices on the reef in locations called "cleaning stations." They use a side-to-side rocking dance to advertise the cleaning station to approaching "client fish" in the water column.
Yellow Crystal Shrimp are reported to even climb inside gill cavities of welcoming fish to eat any parasites found there. It is not documented whether this shrimp's symbiotic relationship with client fish has successfully been reproduced in the home aquarium.
Provide the Yellow Crystal Shrimp with plenty of hiding nooks and caves within the live rock, and avoid stocking with carnivorous fish that may consider the Yellow Crystal Shrimp a tempting meal.
Like other invertebrates, the Yellow Crystal Shrimp is intolerant of copper-based medications, high nitrate levels, and fluctuating water parameters.
they also requires the drip-acclimation process when first introduced to your system. Also, proper iodine supplementation is necessary to promote molting and growth.
To supplement their diet, feed freeze-dried, frozen, and pellet or flake foods.
