A large Pederson Cleaner Shrimp (Periclimenes pedersoni) living with a Corkscrew Anemone (Actinoporus elegans) in a crack in a reef at the Aligator Reef dive site off the coast of Key Largo / Tavernier in Florida, USA.
These cleaner shrimps are one of the primary cleaners of small - medium fish in the caribbean and will even clean a divers fingers if slow and patient motions are made. The shrimp uses the long antenna and swinging body motions to attract fish for cleaning.
