Gorgonian Horned Shrimp are also known as Dragon Shrimp, which is good because they don't seem to spend much time on Gorgonians at all. These peculiar crustaceans much prefer life on Whip Corals.
Like other shrimp who cling onto the slim branches of Whip and Wire Corals, they have a wide variety of colouration so as to disappear into the tentacular foliage. They even have demonic horns running along their back which appear to mimic the actual tentacles and polyps.
Also they got eyes on stalks. It's always nice to see eyes on stalks.

Nice to know that even the Shrimp Satan can relax. Even if it is nestled in a column of stinging tentacles.
