24 days of wonder (8): Symbiosis

I have a marine aquarium at home and have just bought a gorgeous maroon clown fish that has made a home in my anemone. Here’s a photo of them:

They’re an incredible pairing – the fish is immune to the anemone’s sting and so finds a safe sanctuary there whilst keeping the anemone clean as well as feeding it from time to time. It’s a real delight to watch them together.
