Trunk fish

México, Quintana Roo, Cozumel. A trunk fish is being cleaned by a remora among a coral reef. While on a dive on these reefs, I encounter this fish and immediately notice a particular behavior since the fish was swimming in an upright position, and then I notice the remora that was cleaning the fish from parasites. This behavior lasted for a few minutes.
