Whip Coral Shrimp

These two whip coral shrimp were 'normal-size', hanging out at the base of the whip coral. But check out the next photo.

At the top of the whip coral were three tiny shrimp, no bigger than a few milimeters and jumping around like crazy. They would actually jump off the whip coral and swim as far as 15cm from the coral. And check out the photo...this shrimp that's only about 2-3mm big, has a parasite attached to his side. Click on the photo for a larger image.
