Dr. Mac's Comments:
This Candy Cane Snapping Shrimp is an interesting addition to your tank. It's most striking feature is it's snapping claw which is almost larger than half of its body and it's distictive candy cane striping. These shrimps form a symbiotic relationship with some species of goby fish in which they share their burrow and provide the goby food. The goby in exchange warns the shrimp when danger approaches because of its superior eyesight.
