The Humpback Shrimp (Hippolyte dossena, also known as Alcyonohippolyte dossena) is popular among guests of our resort and underwater macro photographers. They can be found in their soft coral habitat and show interesting patterns covering the whole body of the shrimp. They often get confused with the Smooth Soft Coral Shrimp (Hamodactylus aqabai).
