Filmed at Aer Perang in the Lembeh Strait. The shrimps are "graceful commensal shrimps", Ancylomenes venustus, but what is/are the coral/anemones that they are on? The red polyps look like they might be a species of Goniophora, but they have a less regular pattern than other examples I've seen. Also the white tentacles such as the bulb-like tentacle in the lower left of the 3rd clip at 0:26 looks more like something like Entacmaea quadricolor. I'm wondering if there might even be 2 species here mixed??? Tropical Pacific Reef Creature Identification by Humann & DeLoach is no more specifc than "Ancylomenes venustus associates with stony corals and anemones".
