The shrimp is a Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp. From what I understand about it it can clean fishes that are in your tank of ectoparasites or dead tissue. I did do some research on him but I pretty much got him today because I like how he looks in a tank. they do eat frozen food as well as flakes. they also need iodine supplements for molting and growing.
So right now its just the hermit crab that I have that'll be cleaning up the tank, that is until my lfs
gets their shipment in later this week. I did see a crab at the lfs
which one of the workers told me that it was a Strawberry crab I believe, I didn't buy it because I don't know anything about it.
the two chromis is the only fish I have in the tank right now as I just finished cycling. I plan on getting 2 clowns this weekend and then a 6 line wrasse later on.
