These are certainly one of the “gems” in terms of appearance, sporting a red to deep pink body and bright yellow spots. Unfortunately, it can also be a bit on the reclusive side, often preferring to take up residence in live SPS colonies or SPS skeletons, although they may also feel comfortable with a rubble-strewn substrate. Our specimen is not overly shy, and took readily to stick feeding. These diminuative scorps are best started on live ghost shrimp to get them to feed initially (it would not take guppies unless they swam down in front of it). Not super common, but well worth keeping if you can find one.
