The Common Marble Shrimp (Saron marmoratus) is also commonly known simply as the Saron Shrimp. It has a light body with darker, ornate patterns over their entire body. The pattern can resemble polished marble (hence the common name) or even a tightly-packed floral pattern. Color is highly variable.

Saron Shrimp are very cryptic. Although the group as a whole is very similar, each species has a mottled or spotted coloration to blend in with rockwork. They have bent, fat bodies with long front claws (especially on adult males). They will generally accept other foods like flakes, pellets, algae, and frozen meaty foods as well as whatever they scavenge from their tank (or tankmates).

Shrimp molt their hard outer skeleton to grow and it is not unusual to find an empty molt in an aquarium with shrimp. Shrimp also can molt under environmental stress such as water changes, rapid changes in conditions or during shipping. Always acclimate shrimp slowly to avoid sudden changes in their environment.

Crustaceans benefit from iodine and mineral supplements to help form a healthy, hard exoskeleton. Regular water changes with high quality salt mixes usually provide enough, but extra supplements may be needed in reef tanks or in tanks with heavy invertebrates loads that use up iodine and other minerals rapidly. If water changes with new, fresh saltwater are not done regularly, the minerals also get depleted and nitrates accumulate and can also be detrimental to crustaceans and other invertebrates.
