The spotted cleaner shrimp , is a kind of cleaner shrimp common to the Caribbean Sea. These shrimp live in sea anemones, including ''Bartholomea annulata'', ''Condylactis gigantea'', ''Lebrunia danae'' and ''Rhodactis sanctithomae''. They sway their body and wave their antennae in order to attract fish from which they eat dead tissue, algae, and parasites.
