Anemone Shrimp

Anemone Shrimp (Ancylomenes magnificus) belong to the Genus Ancylomenes, which was not scientifically classified until 2010. They live on anemone & some corals, and spend their days cleaning passing fish. This particular shrimp was spotted during a dive at Apo Island. Read more in our post, Pristine Reefs and Macro Critters: Scuba Diving Apo Island, Dauin, and Zamboanguita, Philippines.
