    Zebra Anemone (Nemanthus annamensis). Each stinging organelle (nematocyst) of the sea anemone consists of a small vesicle filled with toxins, an inner filament, and an external sensory hair. When the hair is touched it mechanically triggers the cell explosion, a harpoon-like structure which attaches to organisms that trigger it, and injects a dose of poison in the flesh of the aggressor or prey.

Pink Sea Anemones - Sea anemones are, for the most part, sessile creatures which means they remain attached to one spot. But if conditions grow inhospitable, sea anemones can detach from their home and swim off in search of a more suitable location. They can also slowly glide on their pedal disc and can even crawl on their side or by using their tentacles.

Pink fluorescent anemone with a Red Sea Anemone fish @ 30m depth in Woodhouse Reef, Tiran(Sharm El Sheikh), Egypt. This photo is shot with a magic filter without the use of strobes. If the same shot was done with strobes the original color of the anemone would have been replaced with a brownish/yellow while it would be possible to capture the fish in better quality.
