Sexy Shrimp/Squat Anemone Shrimp

Thor amboinensis

Description:

This was so amazing to watch. The long armed shrimp (Cuapetes tenuipes) kept raising its arms and the sexy shrimp would move their tails back and forth. It looked like the sexy shrimp were in a choir being led by the long armed shrimp. Next to this particular anemone I counted 20 sexy shrimp in total.

Habitat:

Coral Reef. Saw these amazing shrimp together at Bethlehem.

Sure. Do you want to put the same pic up again for the other species?

Thanks Mark. I edited the post to just include one species. Is what I did okay?

Fabulous scene Andrew. To keep the database valid we need to make sure only one species is named per spotting . I think the best thing here might be to put this photo up again and split the scientific names.
