Caption: Magnificent sea anemone (Heteractis magnifica) waving in a strong current. The anemone is home to a group of pink skunk clownfish (Amphiprion perideraion), which shelter within it. This anemone can reach one metre in diameter, and feeds on crustaceans and fish that contact its stinging tentacles. The clownfish are immune to its stings, and make their home inside it. Filmed in Palau.
