The Indo-Pacific distribution of Stenopus devaneyi extends from the Maldives to Hawaii. These shrimps live in
caves and beneath overhangs in around 66 feet ( 20 m)
of depth. Like their relatives, they occupy these retreats
in pairs and maintain their cleaning stations there, removing parasites from large fishes—particularly morays
Aquarium maintenance of these shrimps should
present no difficulties, provided that they are slowly acclimatized to aquarium conditions using the drip method. All shrimps react very badly to changes in salinity,
and too rapid a transfer from the transportation container can rapidly kill them. Devaney’s Coral Shrimp will
quickly make itself at home in a reef aquarium with lots
of nooks and crannies and excellent water quality, and
like its close relative, the Banded Coral Shrimp, it will
thrive on food items missed by the fishes and will often
produce clutches of eggs and larvae that make excellent
live food for corals.
