Rhynchocinetes durbanensis, commonly known as the camel shrimp and the hinge-beak shrimp, is a species of shrimp (family Rhynchocinetidae) found in the Indo-Pacific. Up to 4 cm in length, the shrimp has large black eyes, and features red and white lines on a translucent body. It has many white ocelli (spots) as well as a Y-shaped white mark on the upper front part of its carapace.
Hinge-beak shrimp are great clean up crew , there are mixed reviews that claim that they eat some soft corals , I know customers who swear they dont touch corals , so it can be risky I guess , they can be kept with other shrimp .
As with all shrimp they are tough but dont like PH or salinity swings .
