This image depicts a spotted cleaner shrimp at home amongst the alien landscape of a warty corallimoph. Few people get to appreciate the complexity of life at this macro scale, especially underwater! Texture and colour that would not look out of place in a scifi movie or on an alien world, can be found on many coral reefs! With the loss of this habitat growing year on year, isn't it time we prioritize saving what we already have on this planet, instead of seeking life beyond it?
