Clownfish live in and around anemone in a mutually beneficial relationship. The anemone provides shelter from predators and gives the clownfish a place to find food scraps. The clownfish in return protects the anemone by cleaning the it by eating the parasites that try to attach to the tentacles of the anemone. But doesn’t fish eating anemone have stingers that hurt or even kill fish? Yes but Clownfish have developed a mucus it excretes from its skin that makes it immune from the stinger’s poisonous effects.

In order to start this “relationship” the clownfish does a little dance. Let’s watch shall we.
