Yellow Watchman Goby

An interesting specimen that forms a very cool symbiotic relationship with the pistol shrimp. The yellow watchman goby watches out for predatory fishes and warns the shrimp. The shrimp has limited eye sight and needs the goby to alert them of predators while the goby uses the shrimp's hole as shelter. They both benefit.
