Fire Shrimp

The attached pics are of the new Lysmata debelius. He is soo fun to watch. the LFS guy said he would clean the fish, after watching him, not a doubt in my mind he would love to "clean" a fish or two. He really wants to "clean" the peppermint shrimp most of all....

Try sticking your arm in the tank near it. Cleaners will try to clean your arm too. Cleaning the cuticles can hurt some times...

Very cool looking shrimp!! do they actually clean the fish making them healthier or do they just eat them?

Mine was aggressive toward the fish at first, but I think it was only afraid. Now that it found it's little niche in the tank, it ignores the fish. It would probably clean parasites if it wasn't so busy eating the "easy" food.
