Husbandry

Wittmann & Griffiths, 2014

Very special thanks for the first photo of Mysidopsis zsilaveczi to Guido Zsilavecz of SURG (Southern Underwater Research Group), South Africa.
This little beauty was named in honour of Guido intensiv marine works and his amazing photography.

Mysidopsis zsilaveczi was found during daytime at 6 -10 meters depth on rocky reef walls mainly overgrown by sponges from the Cape Peninsula, South Africa.
This very small shrimp was always seen solitary, settled, not swimming unless disturbed.
On a large rock face there were occasionally more than one, but not close together.
Once disturbed they barely swam up into the water column, and quickly settled down again, within a radius of roughly 20 cm at most.

The unusually large eyes make the animals, who are always on the seabed, appear larger and give the impression that they have a good view of their surroundings and could scare off predators.

Until today, only male of Mysidopsis zsilaveczi were found!
