Skunk Cleaner Shrimps for Sale - The Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis) is also commonly known as the ornamental cleaner shrimp, or white stripped cleaner shrimp, that acts like the medic of any saltwater aquarium, by removing parasites and dead tissue from the body, gills and mouth of a saltwater fish. In fact, these Skunk Cleaner Shrimps will setup a cleaning station on top of a section of the live rock and will wave their antennas until a larger fish stops by and they commence their cleaning tasks. This highly benefits your tank fish and other aquatic animals since it can prevent them from contracting illnesses.
Skunk Cleaner Shrimps are small, growing up to 2 inches in size. This makes it easy for them to probe your fish when they’re cleaning. They will do fine if you want to keep them in multiples but they should not be kept with more aggressive fish species such as Hawkfish, Lionfish and Triggerfish who may make a meal out of them.
