This bright green Periclimenaeus storchi shrimp lives inside a large Didemnum molle tunicate. We did a night dive at this particular site in Alor, and many of the Didemnum molle tunicates contained critters living inside of them (I saw 2 different shrimps and an amphipod). All of the critters fled from lights, and getting this picture took over half an hour of careful planning and execution.
