A mainstay of any aquarium cleanup crew, these endleselly active shrimp will groom parasites off their fish tankmates and will readily consume detritus and uneaten food settling on the bottom of the tank. When multiple individuals are kept in a sufficiently large tank they will form what is known as a “cleaning station”, which fish will naturally be drawn too in order that they may be cleaned.
