Coral Banded baby


I just purchased a torch coral yesterday, and when I got home it had a hitchiker with it. A 1/4 long coralbanded shrimp. Even that small, his colors are bright. Any ideas for keeping him alive? Feeding? He is on top the torch now, so i guess he feels safe. I have also heard that sometimes they will act like a cleaner shrimp, any truth? TIA


Coral banded shrimp are scavengers and it will find things to eat on its own. And yes they can clean fish, but don't do as near as good of job as cleaner shrimp. TJ
