Present a piece of food to it, if it takes it, it's hungry. ;)

Do you think 2 or 3 sexy shrimp would co-exist peacefully with a peppermint shrimp in a 4 g nano? Or should I stick to one or the other?

I really don't see why not, but 4 gallons is kinda small for a pep shrimp, imo. I know mine likes to venture all over my 20gal. tank.

I recently added a peppermint shrimp in my pico with two sexies and they get along swimmingly.

Hello all,

 

Just a few questions, how much do these go for? They seem fairly expensive because of how incredibly awesome they are! Also, are they really called sexy shrimp? or is that just a term used around here?

Hi DH! The prices for sexy shrimp differ. Locally, for me, they run around $25. For others they are around $10 locally and usually around $10 online. And yes, 'sexy shrimp' or 'sexy anemone shrimp' is their common name. Thor amboinensis being their scientific name. On the first post of this thread, there is a list of names for them. :D

Wow, they really go for $25 in your area? Mean LFS people... I got mine for $9 each >_<

Yeah, the LFSs around here charge outrageous prices for everything...... That's why I like trading/buying here on NR. :)

YAY!!! 'Grats on getting your sexies soon. :)

I really don't know about the dotty back, as I have no experience with them. I'll see if I can find any info about them bullying small shrimp.

Thanks Lalani. Mine is a diadem dottyback to be exact.

Hmmm, not finding much information about dottyback/sexy shrimp compatibility, but I suppose that the time in which the sexies might be in the most danger would be during molting periods.. Does the dottyback seem aggressive or territorial?
