Picture of a Scarlet Skunk Shrimp
The Scarlet Skunk Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis) acts like the medic and cleaner shrimp. This active cleaner will set up shop on live rock or coral outcroppings and wait for fish to come and be cleaned of ectoparasites or dead tissue.
The Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp is also known as the Red Skunk Cleaner Shrimp because of the distinct pair of bright red stripes that outline the single white stripe running down its back.
Maximum size is 5cm.
