medusa fish and eggyolk jellyfish
The medusafish, Icichthys lockingtoni, is found in oceanic waters form the surface to many hundred meters deep. They are often associated with jellyfish. This one is living with an eggyolk jellyfish, Phacellophora camtschatica, which provides it with protection from predators and opportunities to scavenge the remains of the jellyfishes’ meals.
