Example text

Despite having earned a reputation of not being reef-safe (they may prey upon other aquarium organisms, namely corals and tridacnid clams (Sprung, 2001; Shimek, 2004)), their amazing coloration still gains them some popularity among hobbyists. The most commonly available member of the genus Saron in the aquarium trade is the marbled shrimp Saron marmoratus (Olivier, 1811), a species inhabiting the Indo-Pacific from East Africa to Hawaii. It displays patches of various brownish hues over the entire body, giving a marbled look; there are also numerous bush-like setae on the body.

Johnson (1966, 1969) also concluded that tactile contact decreases agonistic motivation, possibly due to sex recognition. In this way, Stenopus initially orientate themselves towards another shrimp by visual and chemical detection. As a result of the unspecific nature of these factors an agonistic response is triggered. Posterior tactile contact allows sex recognition, decreases agonistic motivation and increases the motivation towards courtship behavior. Additionally, Johnson (1969) also states that open chelipeds and raised bodies are fixed motor patterns for threatening or attacking specimens, whereas closed chelipeds and crouched bodies (walking legs are flexed in such a way that the shrimp’s body is closer to the substrate than usual) are motor patterns associated with appeasement behavior.

Several species of Periclimenes display similar colorations and are usually mislabelled in the aquarium industry as Periclimenes holthuisi Bruce, 1969. 5 cm, occur from East Africa to Australia and display a transparent body with white and brownish marks in the chelipeds, the mid-dorsal region of the abdomen and the tail fan. Another species commonly mistaken for P. holthuisi is Periclimenes tosaensis Kubo, 1951, differing from it mainly in the coloration of its abdominal hump (being white and violet).
