I remember periods, when it was really hard to find Harlequin Shrimps in Lembeh Strait. Sometimes there were none, sometimes only very small ones sometimes they were only in places with a lot of surge. They have often been well kept secrets, that would not be shared with other dive centers. But since 2-3 months we are finding a unusual high number of them in a shallow coral rubble area (that everyone seems to know by now). In water only 1-3 meters deep, we are spotting in between 2 to 10 (yes, ten!) on a single dive. So come to Lembeh now, if you are still missing Harlequin Shrimps on your bucket list.
