Sea Anemones are members of the invertebrate order Actiniaria (class Anthozoa, phylum Cnidaria). The are primarily sedentary marine animals resembling flowers. Nematocysts, stinging structures in the tentacles, paralyze prey such as fishes and other marine animals. Some species eat only microorganisms. Anemones are eaten by sea slugs, certain starfishes, eels, flounders, and codfish.(Britannica 2003)
