Fact of the Day: Ocean Friends

In the ocean, there's a flesh-eating animal species (which looks like a plant) called anemones which prey on many fish. However they make an exception for clown-fish. The clownfish eats it's leftovers, dead tentacles, circulate the water around them which aids them greatly. Anemones in return protect the clownfish from other fish with it's poisonous tentacles.
