How do you know he is feeding on krill? Aren't krill midwater and the melibes are bottom scrapers?

Just look, if you look very close you can see the krill on the bottom and see their demise.  REALLY NICE, thanks Brent.

Have seen a number of these in Dumaguete & Lembeh - always interesting to follow. They tend to eat small crabs and shrimp, so could definitely be feeding on "krill" in this video.
