This is a movie clip showing the interaction between my blue Stichodactyla haddoni and Amphiprion polymnus .
Dial-up users beware: it is a 12.69 mb movie.
It does take a few minutes to download.
If you have difficulty bringing it up running IE, right click on the link and select "save target as"- this will DL the clip to your PC.

Great movie! :)
I was reading someone's site when I was starting my reef, and they also had a saddleback clown that did the same thing with their blue carpet... they had aptly named it Marquis de Sade... :D

it made it even finnier that the saddleback was just sitting there staring into the lense :)

The fish occasionally dives right into the gut of the anemone and disappears entirely. Of course, she would not cooperate while I had the camera out!

Yes, Carpet Anemones eat fish- and apparently sometimes the symbiont fish. There is a local friend of mine that lost a Clarkii Clown to it's host Merten's Carpet anemone.
