  • Description
  • Blue Coral Banded Shrimp are very useful and colorful shrimp. They resemble other Coral Banded Shrimp, but have a deep bluish purple body. They have white, yellow and red bands on their claws and tail as well.

    Blue Coral Banded Shrimp can be kept in most sized aquariums from 20 gallons on up. Blue Coral Banded Shrimp reach a maximum size of around 2 inches. They are considered peaceful shrimp and will not bother other inverts, coral or fish in reef tanks. Some aggression can be seen between multiple Blue Coral Banded Shrimp in the same aquarium though.

    Blue Coral Banded Shrimp are amazing cleaners and are known to pick parasites and dead skin off of various fish species. Blue Coral Banded Shrimps are also scavengers and will eat some food leftovers found in your tank. Blue Coral Banded Shrimps tend to be good at controlling populations of bristleworms in your tank as well. Supplemental feedings of small meaty foods can also help your Blue Coral Banded Shrimp thrive in your reef tank.
