    Hi everyone! I'm curious about my coral banded shrimp... Due to an error in shipping I ended up with 2 coral banded shrimp. I know they do not get along and I figured I would have to take one to my LFS but in the mean time I threw them on opposite ends of the tank and crossed my fingers. Lo...

    Has anyone heard anything about LiveAquaria's Blue and Yellow Coral Banded Shrimp? When I was first considering a saltwater tank, months ago, I was set on a Coral Banded Shrimp. It wasn't long before I saw they were one of the most dispiritedly safe about animals in the hobby, with some people...

    Hello everyone! I received my bi-monthly live food shipment in the mail and to my surprise they had sent me a bunch of stuff I did not order. They told me to keep it free of charge as it was their error so I now have a frag with like 10 zoas, a purple whip, 6 peppermint shrimps and several...

    So I had a clown and a firefish in my 14 biocube. They had been in the tank together for about a month and seemed fine. I then added a coral banded shrimp and abd shortly there after my firefish died. Figured it was just coincidence... But now my clown is also dead. He seems to have got pretty...

    I am very afraid my cbs will begin taking out my fish, an irresponsible LFS sold him to a very naive me. He (actually she) doesn't bother anyone right now, except I've seen her chase my clown, but I want to add more fish. Particularly a blenny, who might hang around the bottom of the tank...

    First, let me say hindsight is 20/20! I was terribly mislead by a local LFS when I was first getting started about 6 months ago. So, now I have this coral banded shrimp who keeps getting bigger and bolder and is molting every 3 weeks. I caught him this morning finishing off a hermit crab. My...

    I have had this coral banded shrimp for almost 4 months now. He is not afraid of anything. I have watched him stock my Foxface and lunge at him. I have watched him sneak up behind a yellow watchman goby and try to catch him. The other day I was placing a Toadstool mushroom in my tank and he...

    I recently purchased a Coral Banded Shrimp about a week ago. I had no trouble acclimating him and putting him in my main tank. Unfortunately I also got a Maroon Clownfish the same day and didn't isolate him first. He has ick so today I removed the shrimp and put him in an isolation tank so I can...

    Ok...so I have my female coral banded ahrimp in my 30 gallon tank. While she is doing the best she can picking at the stuff on the rocks and such, she needs help. I've been reading that these guys aren't real tolerable of other inverts in the tank, but I'm thinking I need someone else in there...

    I am currently dosing my tank with B-ionic Calc/Alk and feeding the fish New life spectrum pellets. I am wondering if I should also be feeding some other foods to supplement. So far everything is fairly healthy. I want to make sure that I don't starve the goby or the shrimp (I've had them for...

    i was wondering if anyone has had experience with keeping a CBS and cleaner shrimp in the same tank. at my LFS they have CBS seperated from other CBS but keep about 10 cleaner shrimp per tank with 1 CBS. i was wondering if the CBS is just intimidated by all the cleaner shrimp and leave them...

    I added a coral banded shrimp to my tank about 4 days ago. The little guy was doing great for the first two days but then I found him in the back of the tank with his legs and claws curled under him. He almost seems like hes is paralyzed but could he be molting? Params are all good with nitrites...

    I was going to trade in my coral banded shrimp today b/c it has been going after some fish/shrimp i have/had in my tank. When I was catching it I noticed a dark/blue spot on its abdomen/tail which seemed out of the ordinary, and later realized they are eggs! Thing is, its the only coral banded...
