Harlequin Shrimp (Hymenocera)

Family: Gnathophyllidae

Care level: Easy

Temperament: Peaceful

Reef compatibility: Reef safe (with caution, feeds on starfish)

Max size: 5 cm

Diet: Carnivore

The beautiful and elegant Harlequin shrimp can be kept in a reef aquarium to help control an outbreak of asterina starfish. Before adding to your tank please consider that these shrimp will only eat starfish, in a good sized tank with lots of rock and a reasonable population of asterina starfish they will usually be able to find enough food on an ongoing basis as they do not need to eat that much, however, if starfish become completely unavailable you will need to either source some asterina stars from other hobbyists (something they're usually happy to give away) or move the shrimp on to another tank.
