Pederson Cleaner Shrimp

Periclimenes pedersoni

Description:

An obligate associator with the mushroom coral Heliofungia sp. Barely noticeable, upon a closer look at the heliofungia coral these shrimp can often be found as a flash of blue darting through the tentacles. Unafraid the take on large predators such as moray eels and grouper, cleaning parasites in return for their lives!
