Clownfish

The clownfish and sea anemone are two saltwater creatures who rely on each other in a symbiotic relationship. The clownfish hides from larger fish within the anemone’s tentacles, having developed a protective mucous layer that shields it from the potentially harmful stings. In return, the clownfish cleans the anemone, provides it with nutrients in the form of waste, and scares off predatory fish which are attracted to the waving tentacles. The clownfish may even mix its own protective layer with the anemone’s to create a stronger barrier. True teamwork, much like Safire and its risk-averse clients.
