Peppermint Shrimp
 

The shrimp Lysmata wurdemanni lives in the Caribbean Sea and belongs to the cleaners of the oceanic world, although it often scavenges over food debris and dead animals. Her body is yellowish with many red coloured stripes.

They are very social animals and will coexist comfortably with almost all the inhabitants of a reef aquarium. Peppermint Shrimp is a perfect predator of the parasitic anemones Aiptasia that live in rock crevices.
