during the 2010 mass coral bleaching event.
This study focused on an important issue: what happens during mass coral bleaching events to sea anemones? Especially sea anemones which are homes to anemonefishes.
Bubble tip sea anemone (Entacmea quadricolor) which is bleaching, together with other hard corals during the 2010 mass coral bleaching event. A Tomato anemonefish (Amphiprion frenatus) is hovering nearby, probably because the low tide prevents it from being close to its sea anemone home.
