overview
The Yellow Line Shrimp is a relative newcomer to the hobby, making it a showcase species ideally suited for nano-reef aquariums. Nearly transparent as a defense, the Yellow Line Shrimp's body features scattered red and yellow spots, with a bright yellow line extending from the anterior end to its tail, where it splits into two stripes.

In its natural environment, the Yellow Line Shrimp lives in groups in small caves and crevices on the reef in locations called "cleaning stations." They use a side-to-side rocking dance to advertise the cleaning station to approaching "client fish" in the water column. Yellow Line Shrimp are reported to even climb inside gill cavities of welcoming fish to eat any parasites found there. It is not documented whether this shrimp's symbiotic relationship with client fish has successfully been reproduced in the home aquarium.

Provide the Yellow Line Shrimp with plenty of hiding nooks and caves within the live rock, and avoid stocking with carnivorous fish that may consider the Yellow Line Shrimp a tempting meal.

Like other invertebrates, the Yellow Line Shrimp is intolerant of copper-based medications, high nitrate levels, and fluctuating water parameters. It also requires the drip-acclimation process when first introduced to your system. Also, proper iodine supplementation is necessary to promote molting and growth. To supplement their diet, feed freeze-dried, frozen, and flake foods.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" - 1"
