yesterday morning i woke up to the sight of my fungia plate with a mouthful of cleaner shrimp. the shrimp was live and it was not a byproduct of molting. i'm pretty new to the hobby (a few months) but my LFS guy said hes never seen it in 20 years of being in the hobby...so i figure i'd post the pic. you can see his antennae sticking out of the plate's mouth.

btw, i know my sand is dirty, my diamond sifter goby died a few days ago.

I've not seen it either, and I've been keeping marines since '82. You should add that photo and the circumstances to the salt water Q&A section of Tropical Fish Hobbyist magazine. Just email them the circumstances and offer that photo to them. tfhmagazine.com is the site.

Very nice! I have one of them in my 55g reef. They are just beautiful aren't they? Awesome picture also!
