The Fire Shrimp, (Lysmata debelius) or Blood Shrimp as it is also known, is a "cleaner" shrimp, but it won't spend much time consuming algae or even detritus in your tank, rather it will attempt to clean dead scales and parasites from your fish. They should be fed a sinking pellet diet to keep them healthy and behaved, as shrimp may consume snails if they get hungry enough.
They are fairly hardy. This species is hermaphroditic and gets along well in groups with other Lysmata species, but does not get along with Coral Banded Shrimp or other Stenopus species.
