Stenopus hispidus
 

Stenopus hispidus

This is one the most common shrimps in the aquarium trade. In their natural habitat (several tropical seas), the barber shrimps live in couples and serve as cleaners, especially for angelfish (Pomacanthids). They abandon this role, totally or partially, in an aquarium if they are well fed. Like many shrimps, they pick up the food rejected or ignored by fish. The male searches for food and gives it to the female. It is best to keep a couple in a tank and provide them with hiding places, where they will take refuge by day, as they are most active in the dark. In good conditions, this shrimp molts several times in a year, particularly if it is well fed. Size: 7-8 cm.

СКОРОСТЬ ЗВУКА , скорость распространения звуковых волн в среде. В газах скорость звука меньше, чем в жидкостях, а в жидкостях меньше, чем в твердых телах (причем для сдвиговых волн скорость всегда меньше, чем для продольных). Скорость звука в газах и парах от 150 до 1000 м/с, в жидкостях от 750 до 2000 м/с, в твердых телах от 2000 до 6000 м/с. В воздухе при нормальных условиях скорость звука 330 м/с, в воде - 1500 м/с.
