    I would say anything that pairs up. So like two fish, or a shrimp and goby. I would not count something like a single clownfish and anemone, only because it's the clownfish that searches out and decides to use the anemone for a home. The anemone doesn't really care. lol
    Same with acro and crab. The acro has zero say in the matter. :D
    I think I would also count a school or schoal of fish. So like 2-3 anthias hanging out together.

    This is the first time we've done this though, so what does everyone else think?
    I know not everyone has things that pair up, so it may be a light month.

    I would disagree because they do have a symbiotic relationship. The nem may not move to seek the fish out but the fish do carry food to the nem. But if they dont want it then get rid of it. Its a picture.....

    I think this would be a good approach :thumbsup:

    However if people struggle to get photos then perhaps we can broaden the definition in the future.

    Well thank you. I know your only supposed to get one shot but had to catch them dancing, lights are always nearly out when they do it, so very hard. Wish I had a better camera and not just an Iphone. lol
