    Default Symbiotic Relationships

    Hey everyone, I was wondering what are some fun symbolic relationships that marine fish share? I know there is clowns and nems, and pistol shrimp and gobys but is there anything else fun to watch? Thanks

    I think you mean "Symbiotic Relationships". The ocean is full of them. In addition to the two you mentioned above shrimp and anenomes are one of the more common pairs available in the hobby.

    My cleaner shrimps have established a corner of my tank as the "grooming" section. My 5 chromis take turns getting cleaned and the shrimp will ride the Orange shoulder tang around the tank. Very very cool to watch.

    or how about a pom pom crab. a relationship between a crab and an anemone, but not in the way you would think.
