The species-specific partnership between the sea anemone and anemone fish in many parts of the Indo-Pacific region is a well-known phenomenon. Chemicals secreted by the sea anemone to elicit symbiotic behavior of the fish have been studied for two host-guest pairs, Radianthus kuekenthali (sea anemone)—Amphiprion perideraion (anemone fish) and Stoichactis kenti-A. ocellaris. A new pyridinium compound, amphikuemin, which induces characteristic attracted swimming (toward the chemical stimulus) in… Expand
Chemical biology of the mutualistic relationships of sea anemones with fish and crustaceans.

TLDR
Fish species of the genera Amphiprion and Premnas as well as various crustaceans seek protection from predators among the tentacles of sea anemones, where they live essentially unharmed from stinging by the host's nematocysts. Expand
Experimental Analysis of the Symbiosis between Anemonefish and Sea Anemones
TLDR
Naive juveniles of five Amphiprion species in the coastal region of Japan have an innate protection against their symbiotic anemones, and juveniles of all four species examined were almost comprehensively protected from AmphipRion-symbioticAnemone species. Expand
Searching for a Toxic Key to Unlock the Mystery of Anemonefish and Anemone Symbiosis
TLDR
Comparisons of the toxicity of crude venoms obtained from anemones that host anemonefish as a way to investigate why some anem one species are used as a host more than others demonstrate that variation in toxicity among hostAnemone species may be important in the establishment and maintenance of anemOnefish anemon symbiosis.

When a repellent becomes an attractant: harmful saponins are kairomones attracting the symbiotic Harlequin crab
TLDR
This study identifies for the first time the nature of the molecules secreted by sea cucumbers and attracting the symbionts: saponins are the kairomones recognized by the crabs and insuring the symbiosis. Expand
Host selection by shrimps symbiotic with sea anemones: A field survey and experimental laboratory analysis
TLDR
It is inferred that shrimp use more than one sensory modality to locate a host anemone, as in the preference experiments, source of the shrimp affected the results for P. brevicarpalis and T. amboinensis. Expand
Anemonefish oxygenate their anemone hosts at night
TLDR
It is concluded that physical contact between anemonefish and sea anemones elevates the of at least one of the partners at night, and anem onefish behavior at night appears to oxygenate sea anEMone hosts and to augment the metabolism of both partners. Expand
Chemoattraction of the pearlfish Encheliophis vermicularis to the sea cucumber Holothuria leucospilota
TLDR
The specificity of the relationship between Indo-Pacific pearlfishes and their hosts, the sea cucumbers, was examined in Okinawa, Japan, and highly polar substances in the coelomic fluid, body wall, and Cuvierian tubules of H. leucospilota were found to attract the pearlfish. Expand
Sea Anemones and Anemonefish: A Match Made in Heaven
TLDR
Symbioses between the two groups provide the following benefits: mutual protection from predators, an exchange of nutrients, improved reproductive and lifetime fitness. Expand
Anemonefish, a model for Eco-Evo-Devo
TLDR
Together with the use of behavioral experiments, that can be performed in the lab or directly in the wild, as well as functional genetics and genomics, anemonefish provide an attractive experimental system for Eco-Evo-Devo. Expand
Do the Anemonefish Amphiprion ocellaris (Pisces: Pomacentridae) Imprint Themselves to Their Host Sea Anemone Heteractis magnifica (Anthozoa: Actinidae)?
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that Amphiprion ocellaris imprints itself olfactorily to its species-specific host sea anemone Heteractis magnifica, and, furthermore, may be genetically disposed towards olfactory recognition of the host seaAnemone. Expand

TLDR
Evidence is presented that an active principle is present in the mucus secreted on the outer surface of the integument of Amphiprion which raises the threshold of mechanically-induced discharge of the host's nematocysts. Expand
