World Oceans Day June 8, 2014

In honor of the upcoming World Oceans Day, here is a great image of Clown Anemonefish nestled in the tentacles of their host anemone. Clownfish and sea anemones have a mutualistic relationship. Anemonefish are unaffected by the toxins found in the sea anemone's tentacles which provide the tiny fish with shelter and protection from predators which don't have the same immunity to the toxins. In return, fish excrement fertilizes algae living in the host which in turn keep the anemone healthy and happy.
