Swimming Anemones feed at night. Their common name is somewhat misleading because they do not swim - they move a little by a side-to-side motion, but principally rely on rolling or tumbling with the tide and wave surges to find places to settle and attach to the seafloor.
Algae and seagrasses, stranded in lower intertidal areas, to depth of 10 m.
