Saron shrimp



They're not reef safe, but they get pretty big and look pretty neat.

Doesn't look like the saron I had. This is mine, is there different species?

Those shrimp look the same, Im sure its the same species. Not all species look 100% alike theres always variations...

Agreed thanks for

The links lak, There is a difference in the claws and some other aspects of this specimen which is what threw me off. Including the "hairs" and filaments off the abdomin and torso I have seen on most saron. Including the ability to change multiple colors.
