I have posted this on SARK too and am not sure what the rule is in regard to this, from my perspective I would love to get a diverse opinion on the thread and understand that there is an overlap of members to both forums.

I managed to get a blue boxer shrimp this w/e, not that I went there planning to buy one, didn't even know they existed until the guy baggin the boxer asked if I wanted a blue, yellow or regular one!
so my luck indeed.
He is tiny, like 2cm from pincer to pincer and he seems to be doing ok. along with 2 hermits he is my first tank inhabitant. the hermits are travelling all over the place, but the shrimp has found a hidin spot amongst the LR,will he eventually get less shy and feeding, i was told to just put a tiny amount of flakes in the tank, and that should suffice. will that be ok?

Thanks,
The Snoek.

Hi Snoek

Is this the critter below?, if so he's not likely to become less shy.
These type of coral banded stay small (+-3cm body length) I've caught the occasional one off Durban before.

Coral banded shrimp, Reef safe and can be timid. Mine seem to hide during the day. They spawn fairly often in the tank and provide great live food for the fish and corals !
