The background is natural. The clear tone is given by the water column and the far away rocks. I waited >10minutes to take this shot as the little fellow was moving between the weed to hunt small crustaceans

"Pink Peppermint"
I set off to photograph a peppermint shrimp, and looked inside dozens of vase sponges until I finally found this one. I used a small aperture to keep just the eyes in focus and blur the background into a soft pink.
