Saddleback Clownfish 14 April 2010

Six days later, on 14 April, I jumped in the water again to see how the little fish was doing. To my surprise, the growth had "popped" and there was now a small crater.

The next picture had Lexa all excited as one of her study fields is fish cleaning behaviour. Here, we have a cleaner shrimp of some sort (Periclimines sp.), cleaning out the wound. Apologies for the rather poor quality of the image, but I was in such a hurry to capture the symbiosis that I didn't pay much attention to whether the photo was in focus.
