"It is well believed amoung the other races of the galaxy that Salarians know everything about everything already." – Anonymous Source
Salarians are a species renowned for their mental acuity, technical skill and their high aptitude for espionage. Salarians have a very high metabolism rate, lowering their life expectancy to about 40 standard years, but also necessitating very little sleep, around 1-2 hours per day.
Salarians are thin, highly energetic bipeds that stand 1.3 to 1.5m high and weight around 50kg tending to be fidgety and speak quickly. Salarians prefer to sneak around and attack enemies when they know their weaknesses and have all the information about an enemy they can acquire rather than attack head on like their galactic neighbors, the Krogan. When they do find themselves in face to face combat situations they act decisively and in a manner that ends the combat as quickly as possible.
It is far more common is to find Salarians dealing in politics, espionage and technologies. Being of higher intelligence and needing only a few hours of sleep a night gives them an advantage over the other species that sleep far more. If there is anything to be gained from a piece of information the Salarians will have their hands in the pot long before others even have a chance to discover it.
