Stenopus hispidus - banded scissor shrimp
Like cleaner shrimp (Lysmata), they clean fish from parasites. They first make contact with the fish client with their long white antennae, and begin cleaning when the fish signals its willingness by holding still.
Relatively easy to keep and not very sensitive.
Caution when introducing - Like all shrimp, adjustment to density must be very slow, as density is required!
Not more than one scissor shrimp should be kept in the aquarium, at most one pair. Usually hang out in a dark cave during the day, and then become active in the evening.
Good bristle worm eater, although only the smaller species. It is certain that sometimes other shrimp are hunted. In any case, this shrimp is also very defensible!
