Bumble Bee Shrimp
The Bumble Bee Shrimp is best kept as pairs in a small nano aquarium with moderate light to accommodate easy viewing. They cannot tolerate copper or high nitrates, and iodine levels must be correct and maintained to ensure proper molting.
The Bumble Bee Shrimp will feed upon the tube feet of echinoderms, but do not require them for survival. Offer them pieces of frozen meaty foods such as brine or mysis shrimp, cockle, or small pieces of fish. They should be offered these foods daily.
Due to the Bumble Bee Shrimps small size, care should be taken when introducing them into the aquarium as there is a potential that other organisms may consume them.
