    Has anyone had complete success here? One of my cleaner shrimp had a clutch of larvae and then this morning they dissapeared without a trace. They looked like really small mysis last I saw them stuck under His/ Her tail. I have been reading that it is very difficult but I would like to try to...

    I have a dilemma. I found a great pellet coral food that I want to feed my coral but my skunk shrimp keeps robbing it from their mouths.

    Our Stomatella lost its tail. Our Skunk Cleaner Shrimp went mental for it, nibbling away. Question is, if Shrimp loves Stomatella tail so much, why did Shrimp ignore it when it was still attached to Stomatella? Hope you can help :)

He has been molting fine (once every two weeks) and he is acting normal (swimming to my hand when i feed or move stuff around) but he has acquired a few small black dots on him. I saw these on...

    I have recently set up a 10g nano. CUC was the first to go in and consists of 3 ceriths, 2 astrea and 1 margarita snail (which I got for free because LFS didn't notice it hitching a ride on one of the ceriths). My husband went to the LFS without me *sigh* and bought a skunk cleaner shrimp 2...

    I recently picked up a skunk cleaner fish at the local fish store along with a zooanthid frag and a turbo snail. Since I got them, the firefish that has been in the tank for several weeks is getting more freaked out from the cleaner shrimp. Are they supposed to be getting along? I don't think...

    Hi all, I have just started seriously trying to raise cleaner shrimp larvae. My current batch has been going for a week and there are at least 6 in there that are going strong. I had a large die off last night because I ran out of BBS so they died of starvation.:o I am not raising them in a...

    Well tonight I was looking into my tank to see when my cleaner shrimp would spawn. I saw it fanning its eggs so it got me thinking that they would spawn. Soon enough there were tiny little shrimp larvae all over my tank. I tried catching some and I put them in a in-tank breeder box. I have no...

    Hello, I was lucky to get a video with my iPhone of my Blue Tang getting cleaned by my Skunk Cleaner Shrimp in my 4 month old Red Sea Max 250 reef tank. The shrimp usually sets up shop on a rock outcropping and removes parasites and dead skin from any fish willing to be cleaned. Most of...

    I just purchased a cleaner shrimp about a week ago and all he does is hide in a tunnel under one of my rocks besides occasionally coming out to eat at feeding time. Would getting another one help him to feel more comfortable or does he just need some time? I hope to get him to the point that he...
