See the Sea Anemone
From the depths of the ocean to the light of the coral reef, the sea anemone can be found. The sea anemone are a wondrous organism that has a vast habitat (as long as it is tropical) a colorful appearance, and a co-dependent diet.
The sea anemone eats zooplankton specimen, mussels fish, shrimp and other small crustaceans. Tiny marine larva, worms and any other meats they can find are good for the sea anemone. Their tentacles have stingers which are poisonous and the tentacles guide the captured fish or other foods into its mouth the size of the sea anemone They eat scraps off of the clownfish meaning they eat the leftover food from the clownfish.
The sea anemone looks like a flower, colorful, yet dangerous. Unlike flowers, the sea anemone's poisonous tentacles paralyzes its prey. Once paralyzed the sea anemone uses its tentacles to collect and eat its prey. Not all sea creatures fall prey to the sea anemone, clownfish have a mucus covering that protects them from the sting of the sea anemone.Sea anemones are predatory invertebrates with no bones. The size of a sea anemone is 0.5 inches to six feet. They are similar to jellyfish because they are both the same texture and both have stinger
The habitat of the sea anemone is very unique. They live in a colorful area, which coincidentally describes the sea anemone, a quite colorful sea organism itself. The habitat of the sea anemone is also the habitat for other sea creatures such as clown fish, green algae and gold fish. Sea anemones can live in the same habitat for up to 50 years. The sea anemone blends in with its habitat, it basically looks like an underwater garden.
In the “go fish” activity I spent 247.25 in total. The fish I bought were: 1 powder blue tang, 1 yellow tang, 1 blue hepatus tang, 2 male betta and 2 domino jaruzel. The 20 gallon tank is enough to support my fish who total 17 inches in length. I enjoyed shopping for my fish,I wish we could have a real fish tank in class.
