The Yellow Banded Coral Shrimp or also commonly referred to as the Caribbean Boxing Shrimp, has a yellow body and legs, while the chelae and abdomen have red and sometimes white and red bands. This species is a member of the Stenopodidae or “Boxing Shrimp” because of the large pinchers on their third set of legs. They often hold these pinchers erect, giving the appearance of a boxer ready to fight when they feel threatened or are trying to intimidate a rival. Yellow Banded Coral Shrimp are not only attractive in appearance, but are also provide many useful services.

Within a community fish aquarium, Yellow Banded Coral Shrimp will remove parasites and dead skin from many fish species, while in the reef aquarium environment they are very efficient at hunting down and eating Bristol worms. Be sure to keep this species singularly and to use caution when keeping them with other less boisterous shrimp species.
