Tidepool Tim says, "These shrimp are dominant predators of the benthic community. They're mostly active at night, burrowing under the sand with only their antenna exposed during the day. They are hiding from green crabs and other predators. They eat invertebrates, fish larvae, and even juvenile fish."
