SEXY ANEMONE SHRIMP (Thor amboinensis) - ©aquariumdomain.com
The Sexy Anemone Shrimp is named for its unusual body movements. When  walking, it sways its abdomen back and forth with exotic  flair. In addition to this fascinating behavior, the Sexy Anemone Shrimp  is also uniquely dressed in a reddish brown body dotted with brilliant  white spots. These characteristics make the Sexy Anemone Shrimps  enchanting to watch.
Native to the reefs of the Indo-Pacific, this 1-1/2” member of the Hippolytidae  family is usually found amongst the tentacles of an anemone. Most are equally fearless  as they are beautiful and will scavenge in any area in  search of meaty foods.
The Sexy Anemone Shrimp is a relatively fast grower and will molt about once a month.
