Gallery quality underwater photographic print by Paul Waldeck, available framed or unframed in several sizes.
These anenomes are beautifully colored and grow to 2 feet in diameter. The tentacles are tipped with stinging cells (nematocysts) which are used to stun prey.
These tentacles also provide safe haven for a variety of animals which live in a symbiotic relationship with the host anenome. The anenome provides protection with its tentacles and the other animals keep the anenome clean and free from parasites. Some of the animals which live with the anenome include clownfish (anenomefish), porcelein crabs, and a variety of cleaning shrimp
