I noticed this Spotted Hermit Crab (Dardanus megistos) crawling over the coral and waited until it came over the rise, so as not to spook it back into the shell, like I normally do. <> <> <> Canon G9, Inon UCL-165 macro lens.

This tiny (15mm) Porcelain Crab (Porcellanella sp.) is commensal with soft corals. Usually they hide inside the soft coral so you normally only get to see a part of it. Luckily, I found this one on the outside trying to catch some passing food.
