Everyone has a comfort zone. Whether you make it to the drop off or just three inches outside your anemone, you know that dark and scary feeling telling you to turn back.

Outside the movie screen, we don’t know of any Nemo venturing out on the open reef. If you’re a clownfish, your home is your castle and you defend it until the bitter end. Leaving is simply not an option, even if you have to go through a sex change to stay home.

In this week’s episode of Underwater Classroom we explore what makes an anemone go round and learn that life sometimes is stranger than fiction.
