Calliactis tricolor, is a bizarre, red dish-pink sea anemone that lives on shells inhabited by hermit crabs. A fascinating example of symbiosis. The anemone's nematocysts protect the hermit crab from predators. The crab provides the anemone with food and mobility. Flat clawed hermits often fight over anemones and steal them from one another.
