Eats fish

The fish-eating anemone feeds primarily on fish. With its strong tentacles it catches small fish and prawns. Although the fish-eating anemone can grow to up to 10 cm in diameter, fish and prawns are still a big catch for an animal this size.

Protects the greenling

Inside the fish-eating anemone lives a small fish called a greenling. The fish-eating anemone protects the greenling from predators.
