The popular Fire Shrimp is a member of the ‘cleaner shrimp’ group of decapods. In the wild, these vivid red shrimp are known to set up cleaning stations on the reefs, where they will relieve fish of their skin parasites. This behavior is not observed all that often within the confines of the aquarium, the reclusive shrimp sometimes unfortunately preferring to feed on small polyps such as zoanthids and certain SPS corals (do research on invertebrates and corals prior to purchase!).
