Mr. Clean

No more than an inch long, the Spotted Cleaner Shrimp hiding among the arms of the giant caribbean anemone performs a vital service on the reef. It emerges from the protection of the anemone to clean parasites from fish that stop by for this service. I photographed this shrimp as it emerged to see if I wanted a cleaning! ...maybe worth a LARGER look.
