There are examples in coral reef system of symbiotic relationships of a fish
species and a shrimp or lobster species sharing a burrow and working
together in hunting food. (Can't remember species names off the top of my
head.) Finding it in a temperate freshwater system would be a first, to my
knowledge. And chubsuckers are tough fish, anyway.
