Alpheoidea is a superfamily of shrimp containing the families Alpheidae, Barbouriidae, Hippolytidae and Ogyrididae.
Animals are multicellular eukaryotic organisms that form the biological kingdom Animalia.
Antennae (singular: antenna), sometimes referred to as "feelers," are paired appendages used for sensing in arthropods.
In invertebrate biology, an appendage (or outgrowth) is an external body part, or natural prolongation, that protrudes from an organism's body (in vertebrate biology, an example would be a vertebrate's limbs).
An arthropod (from Greek ἄρθρον arthron, "joint" and πούς pous, "foot") is an invertebrate animal having an exoskeleton (external skeleton), a segmented body, and paired jointed appendages.
A carapace is a dorsal (upper) section of the exoskeleton or shell in a number of animal groups, including arthropods, such as crustaceans and arachnids, as well as vertebrates, such as turtles and tortoises.
The Caridea, commonly known as caridean shrimp, are an infraorder of shrimp within the order Decapoda.
A cleaning station is a location where aquatic life congregate to be cleaned by smaller creatures.
Cleaning symbiosis is a mutually beneficial association between individuals of two species, where one (the cleaner) removes and eats parasites and other materials from the surface of the other (the client).
Color blindness, also known as color vision deficiency, is the decreased ability to see color or differences in color.
Coral reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals.
Crustaceans (Crustacea) form a large, diverse arthropod taxon which includes such familiar animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimp, krill, woodlice, and barnacles.
Crustaceans may pass through a number of larval and immature stages between hatching from their eggs and reaching their adult form.
The decapod crustacean, such as a crab, lobster, shrimp or prawn, is made up of 20 body segments grouped into two main body parts, the cephalothorax and the pleon (abdomen).
The Decapoda or decapods (literally "ten-footed") are an order of crustaceans within the class Malacostraca, including many familiar groups, such as crayfish, crabs, lobsters, prawns, and shrimp.
In biology, a hermaphrodite is an organism that has complete or partial reproductive organs and produces gametes normally associated with both male and female sexes.
Hippolytidae is a family of cleaner shrimp, also known as broken-back shrimp or anemone shrimp.
The Indo-Pacific, sometimes known as the Indo-West Pacific, is a biogeographic region of Earth's seas, comprising the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, the western and central Pacific Ocean, and the seas connecting the two in the general area of Indonesia.
Johannes Govertus de Man (May 2, 1850 in Middelburg – January 9, 1930 in Middelburg), was a Dutch biologist.
A larva (plural: larvae) is a distinct juvenile form many animals undergo before metamorphosis into adults.
Lysmata is a genus of shrimp in the infraorder Caridea, the caridean shrimp.
Lysmata debelius is a species of cleaner shrimp indigenous to the Indo-Pacific.
Lysmata vittata is a species of shrimp, native to the Indo-Pacific from East Africa to the Philippines, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Malacostraca is the largest of the six classes of crustaceans, containing about 40,000 living species, divided among 16 orders.
A marine aquarium is an aquarium that keeps marine plants and animals in a contained environment.
Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure through cell growth and differentiation.
In biology, moulting (British English), or molting (American English), also known as sloughing, shedding, or in many invertebrates, ecdysis, is the manner in which an animal routinely casts off a part of its body (often, but not always, an outer layer or covering), either at specific times of the year, or at specific points in its life cycle.
Omnivore is a consumption classification for animals that have the capability to obtain chemical energy and nutrients from materials originating from plant and animal origin.
In evolutionary biology, parasitism is a relationship between species, where one organism, the parasite, lives on or in another organism, the host, causing it some harm, and is adapted structurally to this way of life.
The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format developed in the 1990s to present documents, including text formatting and images, in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems.
The pelagic zone consists of the water column of the open ocean, and can be further divided into regions by depth.
A pincer is the part of an arthropod that enables it to carry loads, to defend against other creatures, or to attack prey.
Plankton (singular plankter) are the diverse collection of organisms that live in large bodies of water and are unable to swim against a current.
The Ray Society is a scientific text publication society that publishes works devoted principally to British flora and fauna.
The Red Sea (also the Erythraean Sea) is a seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean, lying between Africa and Asia.
In biology, a species is the basic unit of classification and a taxonomic rank, as well as a unit of biodiversity, but it has proven difficult to find a satisfactory definition.
Symbiosis (from Greek συμβίωσις "living together", from σύν "together" and βίωσις "living") is any type of a close and long-term biological interaction between two different biological organisms, be it mutualistic, commensalistic, or parasitic.
The thorax or chest (from the Greek θώραξ thorax "breastplate, cuirass, corslet" via thorax) is a part of the anatomy of humans and various other animals located between the neck and the abdomen.
The tropics are a region of the Earth surrounding the Equator.
The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) is the "umbrella" organisation for the world zoo and aquarium community.
