Hochi cleaner shrimp (Lysmata cf hochi).

As with Peppermint shrimps, these cleaner shrimps eat Aiptasia anemones. They work in a group with one grabbing the tentacles and pinning the Aip to the rockwork, whilst the others attack it from behind. A single shrimp can tackle very small Aiptasia on it’s own, but, to be effective they really need to be in a group. They are a useful addition to the reef aquarium even if you don’t have Aips, because they are good general scavengers, and should any Aips appear at a later date they will eradicate them quickly preventing a plague of Aips occurring.

They are shipped at 1”-2”, maximum size is around 2”.

They are reef safe, and safe with other inverts. As with all small creatures avoid mixing with large fish that may try to eat them.
