Likely Reef Tank Suitable
Natural Environment: Coastal reefs in association with algae and hydroids
General Husbandry: Has a temperature range of 72 to 83°F (22 - 28°C). A very small (body size .5 inch (1.5 cm)) mantis shaped amphipod that usually inhabits hydroid colonies. Rarely seen in the wild and not collected for the aquarium trade. Shown here for identification only.
Note: This is included here because this species is certainly a strange looking amphipod that I thought you might find interesting because it’s an extremely small species looking similar to a mantis shrimp.
