    Does anyone have experinece with high tailed shrimps. Apparently they are good in nano and will host in LPS, but i was wondering if anyone here has kept them and know if more than one can be kept in a nano?

    They're harmless and host with anemones. They should be kept in a group of three or more and they will host together in one anemone, traditionally a carribean carpet anemone (Schicdactyla Helianthus). The live on the anemone mucous and whatever floats by and are booted by more aggro clowns so I can see how they would irritate an LPS in the absence of an anemone by picking on the mucous. The smaller coral won't be as tolerant as the large anemone

    hmmmm darn. I'm certainly not putting a nennie in the nano for them to host. they are really pretty fellas, i will have to read a while on them.

    thanks for the info Tony:)

    They're tiny, only a about 2cm long. Maybe your lions wont find them worth the effort
