Harlequin Shrimp

Harlequin Shrimp

This species of Harlequin Shrimp, Hymenocera picta differs from another similar species, Hymenocera elegans with the color of its spots. H. picta has purple and red spots, while H. elegans has blue spots. The Harlequin Shrimp does best in pairs, living on coral reefs, defending their home. As with other marine shrimp, this species is highly sensitive to high nitrates as well as copper, and should have pristine water quality. Drip acclimation is highly recommended.
