A user sent us a link to a recently uploaded video of a bubble coral shrimp (Vir philippinensis). A unique shrimp that primarily is only found in the bubble coral. The shrimp can be identified by its clear body and solitary thin purple stripe running the length of its body and claws, including purple antennae.

In doing research I came across an additional video of the bubble coral shrimp. It is difficult to determine if this video was taken in a captive reef tank or in it’s natural environment, what ever the case, this poor coral is infested by flatworms.
