Has anyone ever seen this before? My 6 Line doesn't seem to have any issue swimming in and out of my anemone. At first I thought he was just being really careful but now I can see the anemone actually brushing up against him multiple times and he seems unaffected.

I had a wild-caught (but trained to eat mysis) male & female black kuda seahorses that used to do that with my big GBTAs. They would go underneath and push the anemone up from its underside. Never did get stung. They were also a breeding pair.

I've heard about it happening. But never witnessed it first hand.

Neat.

I'm starting to think that the anemones may have the intelligence to selectively sting prey and predators... In my tank I have a yellow tang, a hippo tang and two chromis. None of them seem particularly concerned with brushing against my tube nem, carpet nem, rock nem, or my RBTA. The tang in particular couldn't care less and he is spotless. No burns at all.
