Photographer: Paul Osmond  (see this users gallery)

This is a typical pair of Shrimpgoby and Snapping Shrimp - in this case an unidentified Shrimpgoby (Amblyeleotris sp.) & likely a Marbled Snapping Shrimp (Alpheus rapax).



The Shrimpgoby provides sentinal service, while the nearly blind Shrimp maintains and builds a safe burrow and tunnel complex which they can hide in.
