The Pederson cleaner shrimp does best in a reef aquarium with plenty of live rock for foraging and hiding. They will form a relationship with many species of anemone, but this is not required for the health and well being of the shrimp. They will lure large fish into their surrounding and will climb onto the fish to clean parasites from them. Do not house the cleaner shrimp with any fish or invertebrates that may cause harm to them.

In the aquarium, it will eat most meat or fish-based diets.
