Very Cool - does this shrimp sp. have any common name? Is it an occasional import? Kept in reef tanks? Curious about the species as much as I am about the success!!!

Congrats!

Common name would be camel shrimp a.k.a the hinge-beak shrimps. The one common in the trade would have a peppermint appearance (red and white striped). Unfortunately these are hardly reef safe as they have been known to pick on corals. Not sure what this species is. Supposedly collected from Australian waters. :)
