Harlequin shrimp when hungry


Recommended Posts

My shrimp always comes out and hangs out at the front of the tank when wanting a star.

It seems to have learned that its starfish comes from me.

I can move my hand at one area near it and it will come closer.

When I put a starfish in it will quickly head to it. Must have an awesome sense of smell.

For a shrimp the harlequin seem to learn pretty well.

Others pple harlequin shrimps seem the same way?

That is really cool.


My Peppermint shrimp came out during feeding time today (I RARELY see him) and I fed him frozen (thawed) squid from a skewer for the first time (I've had him for like 2 weeks). It was pretty awesome.

Don't really see it until lights out, then it's wandering around the tank looking for eats.


Can put a starfish as far as possible from it in the tank and it will immediately smell it out and attack.


Coolest looking shrimp I ever quickly tired of owning...
