Intimate relationship in the aquatic world

Hi guys!I had been to an aquatic zoo recently and one of the most fascinating things that I watched there is the symbiotic relationship between sea anemones and clownfish(Remember "Finding Nemo"?) which I think is worth sharing here.

Clownfish and sea anemones have a symbiotic mutualistic relationship with each providing a number of benefits to the other.The sea anemones provided protection to the clownfish as well as feed them through scraps left from it's meals and occasionally even dead anemone tentacles.On the other hand the clownfish protects the anemone from parasites and act as "cleaner fish".It has also been theorized that the clownfish use their bright coloring to lure small fish to the anemone, and that the activity of the clownfish results in greater water circulation around the sea anemone.
