cleaner shrimp trivia

Ran across some interesting cleaner shrimp info today. Lysmata amboinensis (pic attached)
is the name for a color morph from the Indio Pacific & Red Sea. The cleaner shrimp from tropical Atlantic are often called Lysmata grabhami. The Atlantic shrimp, the white stripe goesall the way to tthe end of the tail and seperates the two red sides of the tail. The Indio-Pacific has the stripe stopped and has spots on the two sides of the tail.

I think it was the new big snail, but didn't see it happen. Sneaky lil bastard. He was in the general vicinity, though.
