Red-orange Ghost Shrimp

I’ve seen Red-orange Ghost Shrimp (Corallianassa longiventris) several times, and I’ve learned that the only way to see anything more than the tips of their claws and their face is you have to tempt them out with something to eat. I managed the first shot by giving it some algae, and then after getting Carl’s assistance we fed it some sea grass so that each of us could get slight more of the shrimp in the photo. But I have never seen these guys come out of the burrow for anything!
