Interesting and eerily beautiful, the Harlequin shrimp makes a dazzling display to reef aquariums. The Harlequin Shrimps diet consists of the tube feet of starfish and will quickly rid your aquarium of coralline algae eating asterina stars. It will often dine on the feet of the starfish leaving the center for last in order to keep the starfish alive as long as possible.
The Harlequin shrimps diet is live Sea Stars which makes keeping them particularly challenging. Take care when using the Protoreaster type of sea star as food since these are NOT reef safe and will eat corals, anemones, slow moving fish, and anything else it can catch. Harlequin shrimp can be taught to eat frozen Sea Star pieces with time.
