The Red-striped Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmatella prima) can be found in the reefs around Romblon Island. They usual clean small fish and have a translucent yellowish coloration with wide longitudinal red stripes, yellow legs and white or yellowish antennas. They have a long straight rostrum and thin claws – almost indistinguishable from normal legs. The tail has two lateral yellow bands.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
