Lysmata and Sawblade Shrimps; Hippolytidae

Members of the Hippolytidae family are known as “broken-back” or anemone shrimps. Both of ours have relatively normal backs and don’t live on anemones!

This shy cleaner shrimp is beautifully formed and marked. Found hanging out on and in small sponges.

Found on the wire corals, but they are always hiding around the other side...
