The scaly maw anemone prefers shallow water and ample exposure to sunlight, and exists in a symbiotic relationship with a species of vibrant algae that live atop the anemone’s trunk. These algae thrive in the sun and create a thin scaly bacterial mat around the structure of the anemone as they feed on other microorganisms that filter through the anemone’s waterspace.
