Two of the shrimp that I had were notorious coral eaters, the especially enjoyed trying to eat my plate coral. I had to keep a small PVC pipe by the tank to shoo them away from the plate coral. They particularly enjoyed eating LPS and a few SPS corals, however moving the coral away from their "house" fixed the problem. I believe they were trying to clean off the slime coat of the corals, like they would from a host anemone, but instead of benefiting the coral, their attentions resulted in tissue necrosis. \r\n\r\nCaptive care – Their name comes from the dance they do. They are hosted by SPS corals and anemones, but don’t require them for survival. They do best when kept in a group and in a small tank with inhabitants that wont eat them. They are hardy and fun additions to a nano tank. Like all invertebrates, they are extremely sensitive to nitrates and copper, and should only be kept in aquariums with pristine water conditions.
