This wonderful underwater scene was captured at Bunaken in the Philippines. This Magnificent Sea Anemone has commensal fish, crabs and shrimps associated with it - like many anthozoans serving as a partner in symbiotic relationships with other reef organisms. In this picture a Pink Anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion) can be seen nestling in its tentacles.
