The very small Sexy Shrimp (Thor amboinensis) can be found on coral reefs throughout the world, where they have become famous for their eponymous dance moves. They grow to about half an inch long, and are fairly slender. They can host in a variety of anemones, Carpet anemones, Condy anemones, and Bubble Tip Anemones to name a few. They will also host in some LPS coral, and zoanthids. They should be target fed small sinking foods that would be suitable to feed to fish, otherwise they may feed on anemone or coral mucous. This usually does not cause great damage to their host, but it can irritate them. They do well in groups. Males have an interrupted band around the rear of their abdomen, females have uninterrupted bands. In the second picture on this listing (swipe right for mobile users) the male is the shrimp on the left, the other three shrimp are females.
We recommend more than 3 Sexy Shrimp be sent with UPS. Sexy Shrimp should not be ordered just by themselves with Priority Mail. Light boxes will get tumbled with that service.
