Crown Shrimp*

Species Availability:   No stock

The Crown Shrimp (Periclimenes koronensis) hosts in long tentacle plate corals. The relationship is probably commensal, rather than symbiotic. Meaning the coral doesn't get much from the relationship, and the shrimp gets protection and steals some food from time to time. It is a tiny shrimp, with a vivid bright red head and white crown that gives it its common name. The rest of its body is translucent. It grows to about 2/3rds of an inch.
