On December 3, 2011 I was diving on the East end pinnacles at Santa Rosa Island on the Sea Divers aboard the Peace.
On one of the dives I encountered some very tiny shrimps I had not seen before. I thought you might be interested in the pictures and what I discovered them to be after some research.
