July 7, 2018 – Along this Caribbean reef, Pederson cleaner shrimp wait to feast on the parasites of these fish. A study shows that Pederson cleaner shrimp and fish signal to each other to initiate transactions. The fish will approach the shrimp holding their body very still. The shrimp then wave their antennae showing that they’re willing to clean. The fish will usually change to a darker color, a signal to the shrimp that there are no bad intentions. The shrimp will clean inside the gills, mouth, and other hard-to-reach areas. The shrimp gets a meal, and the fish stays healthy. It’s a win-win-fin.

Ever seen moray eels guarding shrimp? On a mission to get some close-up shots of the colourful shrimp living on a reef in South Africa’s Sodwana Bay, underwater cameraman Bart Lukasik encounters some strange and sharp-toothed obstacles: black-cheeked moray eels. Framing up for the perfect shot meant risking his fingers as the snappy eels seemed to be acting as bodyguards to these tiny crustaceans. We’ve certainly never seen anything like it! We’re also treated to a visit by a curious and very friendly reef manta ray.
