Other information:
Arguably one of the most colourful marine shrimps with its deep red colouration, white spots, antenna and feet. They are hermaphrodites, so any two individuals can mate, although raising the offspring is incredibly difficult in captivity. May clean passing fish, but less likely to do so than Cleaner Shrimp. This species was named after Helmut Debelius a prolific author and underwater photographer.
