Cleaner Shrimp and Anemone... friends?

My Green BTA has been moving all over the tank. I've noticed that the cleaner shrimp is almost always right next to the BTA, wherever it goes. Is this common? I've never read of any relationship between them. Maybe he's just waiting to snatch some food from it.

There is no type of symbiotic relationship between Lysmata shrimp and anemones. That is just where he likes to "set up shop" I suppose.

That's what I figured. Thanks.

I had a cleaner shrimp before that never did any cleaning. He died so I got a new one. This one will practically chase down fish and jump 'em.
