the home to many living things

Corals are home to many different types of animals. Crutaceans, sea urchins , molluscs, clams and some fishes are some of them. Clownfishes lives and hides from its enemies and predators within the tentacles of the coral reef anemone. It escapes being stung by covering itself in a layer of mucus from the anemone. The anemone is fooled into thinking the the fish is part of itself.
