Anemone Shrimp

The pacific clown anemone shrimp makes its home inside the stinging tentacles of sea anemones. It is a symbiotic relationship where the shrimp receives protection from the anemone and the anemone shares some of the shrimp's food. These types of relationships are common on the reef. Anemones are also known to form a similar bond with several species of clownfish.
