Tube anemone. Cerianthus filiformis tube anemone amongst corals on a reef. Tube, or cylinder, anemones are anthozoans that look very similar to sea anemones, but belong to a different subclass. They inhabit soft sediments in tubes made of secreted mucous, which they live in and can withdraw into for protection. Photographed off Rinca island, Komodo National Park, Indonesia.
