Symbiotic Fish Behavior.

Witnessed a lot of symbiotic fish behavior during our Christmas trip to Cozumel. Kathryn and I did one dive in front of the resort over the eel grass bottom and photographed numerous fish species. This Puddingwife wrasse was being closely shadowed by this Bar Jack. The Bar Jack is using the wrasse for cover to be able to get close to unsuspecting prey species. This is similar to what trumpetfish do.
