Thor amboinensis - White Spotted Anemone Shrimp/"Sexy Shrimp" - This fun shrimp derives it's cute name from its peculiar movements. The tiny shrimp wiggles its body back and forth as it moves, in a most "provocative" manner (if your a shrimp of the opposite sex, of course!). In nature, they are found in and among anemones, but they will tend to "camp out" in corals as well, providing you with a little extra interest  in your reef! These shrimp  seem to do better in small groups, and are quite peaceful. Because of their small size, they may become a menu item for many fishes, such as Wrasses, Hawkfishes, etc., so do keep this in mind when you contmplate keeping them. They reach a maximum size of slightly over an inch, and do molt regularly as they grow. They will consume uneaten food, detritus, and other organic materials found in the rocks and substrate. Acclimate them slowly, as they are sensitive to rapid environmental changes. A popular, interesting and colorful addition to your reef system!


 SIZE: Approx. 3/4" or less

Details

There are literally hundreds of  species of shrimp in the world's oceans. However, there are only a few dozen that find their way into the aquarium trade. Shrimp fulfill an aesthetic and utilitarian role in the aquarium. Some are useful as "cleaners", removing parasites from fishes, while others scavenge uneaten food. Some of the more useful species, such as the Peppermint Shrimp, Lysmata wurdmanni, consume pesky Aiptasia anemones. Some have symbiotic relationships with other animals, such as anemones or even fishes. Shrimp are attractive, interesting, and practical additions to the home aquarium.
