Clean Freaks! Cleaner Shrimp Earns His Keep (PICS)

I thought you all might enjoy some photos I took this evening. Many of them involve my Imperator and Scopas Tang getting some serious attention from my Cleaner Shrimp, Jacques.

The shots of the Imp getting his gills cleaned (where you can see clean through his mouth to the rock behind) are especially interesting.

There are a handful of other shots that I thought were fun, too...

I do tons of photography, so I tend to put my pictures on my own server for ease of sharing:

- Enjoy!

Thanks, all.

We've gotten something of a discussion going about the photography side of things in another thread about Hermit Crabs. It's here if you're interested.
