Bubble Anemones are so named
because their tentacles often take the shape of bubbles. They are
one of the creatures in which Clown Fish most enjoy living.
The first Bubble Anemone I
purchased is a brilliant white. It is so white, in fact, that it
is difficult to photograph. This first photograph was exposed so
that you could see the base of the Anemone. It was in the process
of walking across a rock, so that it could make its home in a
cave inside the rock.
Here it is exposed so as to show
its color better. It has its foot deep inside the rock,and is
extruding its tentacles to obtain light and food.
Here it is with the Maroon Clown
Fish in it. The Anemone is so bright that details in the Clown
Fish are almost impossible to make out.
Here is another Bubble Anemone,
this time with peculiarly colored tentacles.
Notice the whiteish bands around
the bulges, along with the purple tips.
This Anemone is dark enough that
the clown fish looks quite different.
