Description

The Gold Coral Banded Shrimp or Gold Boxer Shrimp is similar in appearance to the Banded Shrimp except for having a yellow upper body.

 

The Gold Banded Coral Shrimp is a great beginner invertebrate. It will clean parasites from the skin and mouth of fish and scavenge for organisms in the rock and substrate. Keep only one unless part of a mated pair. House with peaceful fish such as tangs or clownfish with plenty of live rock for shelter.

 

Banded Coral Shrimp will hide and molt in the tank periodically.  Keep water conditions stable and supplement with iodine.

 

Marine shrimp are very resourceful in finding their own food but it will be necessary to supplementing their diet with small food pellets and flake food; also include minced meaty foods.
