Ecology

It lives in the shade of shallow reefs and eats creatures attached to other fish. Even if you find it in a crevice between rocks, if you are careful, it will enter the back. Sometimes there are several.

Habitat

Miura Peninsula Arasaki

I took this picture when I was in the shadow of a rock at a depth of about 2m. It seemed to stick to the wall and stay still. It seems that other small fish such as sawfish are also favorite rock shades, and it may be that there are many white shrimps because it is a place where fish gather.
