    Found Shrimp?


    I found this guy in a pocillipora while taking pictures... his whole body is clear... very hard to see but he is there... and I did see one of his claws... he looks like a shrimp.. ghost shrimp maybe?

    That's what I was thinking, being that it has a clear body... However I wasn't sure because he's taken up residence in a pocillapora by the looks of it.

    I just was worried at teh time because I didn't know what they were....They were in a coral at the time so I removed them just to be safe...Now they are thriving so well int he refugium I just left them there....from what I have read they are no harm to the reef. If they survive getting eaten when young....good luck
