Anenomefish live among the tentacles of their host anenome without being stung. Fiercely territorial they offer their host protection from those fish able to prey on the anenome while in turn taking cover in the stinging tentacles.

I have been captivated by their frenzied attacks involving rushes, feints and the occasional nip but try not to stress them by staying too long.
