Notes: Gold Banded Coral Shrimp are a hardy aquarium species that can usually be spotted lurking in the shadows. They come out at feeding time to collect any scraps of food missed by the fish. They will also hunt for bristleworms helping to keep them under control. Supplemental feeding is usually not required as long as there are some leftovers for the shrimp to eat. Multiple individuals will usually fight unless kept as a mated pair. Providing additions of iodine will help the shrimp during molting.
Some predatory fish such as Hawkfish, Lionfish, Triggers, Puffers, and large Wrasses may eat the Gold Banded Coral Shrimp.
