Coral Banded Shrimp

The Coral Banded Shrimp is pretty common in Caribbean, you can usually find them tucked up in rocks and corals, and sometimes in sponges.

They are very distinctive with their red and white stripes, and very long white antennae.

They tend to come out more at night than during the day, and the smaller ones can be found at cleaning stations.

At night they are easy to find because their eyes reflect the light. All you need to do is shine your light over a reef and look for the red eyes located on the rocks and corals. It is a little weird the first time to see all those red eyes seemingly staring back at you.
