The colonial anemone, Genus - Amphianthus, is, as illustrated here, a particularly attractive anemone that is found attached to various sedentary organisms, such as sea fans and hydroids. The anemone wraps its base around the branch of the species to which it is attached. Reproduction is by basal laceration, often building-up large aggregations of closely packed individuals, although sexual reproduction is also likely.
