Caption: Star pufferfish (Arothron stellatus) being cleaned by a bluestreak cleaner wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus, between eyes). Cleaner wrasses remove parasites from the bodies of other fish. This pufferfish is found in the tropical Indo-West Pacific. It feeds on corals, sponges and crustaceans, crushing and grinding them with its powerful jaws and sharp teeth. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand.
