This months subject:

Symbiosis of at least two critters. 

I'm going to be strict for this POTM. Please make sure it is at least two critters that are working together for the greater cause. Not two fish feeding, not a starfish on a snail and definitely not bristle-worms eating leftovers. Real symbiosis.

You will be disqualified otherwise.

Deadline:

I am going to try to be better on this one.

September 1st

I like this one!  Cool idea Miles.  Just to be a pain... does photosynthetic coral count?  I am guessing you want something beyond that like Goby/pistol shrimp pairs or cleaner shrimp/fish combos?  Figured I would ask before you get a deluge of photos that don't hit the mark. :D

Does it have to be mutually beneficial? I'm guessing my triggers eating my last chromis doesn't count. Haha

Gosh, what a tough crowd. 

Symbiosis: noun

Def- Symbiosis is any type of a close and long-term biological interaction between two different biological organisms, be it mutualistic, commensalistic, or parasitic

I'll have a go- meet Frank and Al- I actually don't remember buying Frank (the shrimp goby)- I think Al (the pistol shrimp) built him from spare fish parts...

they have been "together" for at least five years...

I know this doesn't count.  But there is a relationship here. She must be dreaming of which one to eat first.
