The Bongo Shrimp, Phyllognathia ceratophthalma, is a tiny shrimp that feeds on live starfish. They are sometimes used to reduce Asterina or brittle starfish populations that have gotten out of control, but mostly they are an attractive addition to a nano or pico tank. Their colorful markings and cirri help to break up their pattern in nature, and avoid predators. These shrimp are less than one inch long, and 1/4 of an inch wide.
