White peppermint stripes and long, waving antennae, the banded cleaner shrimp certainly isn’t hiding—it’s advertising. They wave their antennae to signal that they’ll clean parasites and dead skin off any fish and get a meal from the pickings. This shrimp is well equipped for eating, with 6 pincers, and picks up scraps anywhere. They’re partners for life, and claim their territory for as long as a year.
Coral-love and bubbles!
