Bulb-Tentacled Anemone | Entacmaea qaudicolor

"The Bulb or Bubble Tip Anemone is found in oceans around the world. The Bulb Anemone attaches its pedal disc deep within dead coral amongst rubble or on solid, living reefs."   -

A pair of Blue Dragon Nudibranchs | Pteraeolidia ianthina

"Pteraeolidia has evolved a method of capturing and farming microscopic plants (zooxanthellae) in its own body. The plants flourish in this protected environment and as they convert the sun’s energy into sugars, they pass a significant proportion on to the nudibranch for its own use. Adults can last some time without feeding, presumably obtaining sufficient nourishment from their zooxanthellae gardens.”   -

Nudibranch | Nudibranchia

"Some nudibranchs are solar-powered, storing algae in their outer tissues and living off the sugars produced by algae’s photosynthesis."  -

Nudibranch | Nudibranchia

"Nudibranchs have obtained different defenses in order to escape predation; chemical defenses are obtained from their prey by ingestion, and are then incorporated into nudibranch tissues. The bright colors and patterns of nudibranchs serve as a warning signal to predators of their chemical defenses. Alternatively, the coloration of nudibranchs could also be a camouflage mechanism, allowing them to blend in to various substrates."  -
