  • Description
  • The Bumble Bee Shrimp is a stunning and very colorful small shrimp. Bumble Bee Shrimp have a mostly tan body with strong yellowish hues. Bumble Bee Shrimp have strong black stripes across its back that make it resemble a bumble bee, hence its name.

    Bumble Bee Shrimp reach a maximum adult size of around 1 inch and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 10 gallons. Bumble Bee Shrimp are peaceful shrimp and shouldn't bother other fish, coral or inverts in your system. For this reason, Bumble Bee Shrimp are a great addition to reef tanks.

    Bumble Bee Shrimp are considered hard to keep based on their small size. Most fish will try to eat this small shrimp if given the chance. Bumble Bee Shrimp in the wild will also normally feed on the legs of starfish, so this needs to be taken into account if adding a Bumble Bee Shrimp to a reef tank with starfish.

    Bumble Bee Shrimp are carnivores and will get most of their food by scavenging through the tank. If you would like to supplement their diet you can add food to the tank like brine and mysis shrimp, also high quality meaty frozen foods.
