 Glad,  you  enjoyed  it.
 The  creatures  posted  are  present  through  western  region  of  India,  however  there  are  no  other  places  than  narara  &  surrounding  islands,  where  you  can  walk  amongst  them.
 Normally  you  have  to  go  snorkelling  or  scuba  diving  to  see  corals  and  sea  anemones.

 Do  you  have  a  photo,  would  sure  like  to  see,  so  that  I  can  avoid  it.   Chuckle  
 The  snaps  on  internet  might  be  diferent.

 I  tried  taking  close  up  of  a  carpet  anemone,  however  using  a  borrowed  camera  has  its  own  limitations.
 This  was  huge  in  size,  when  totally  opened  it  must  have  been  1.5  ft  from  end  to  end  or  even  wider,  with  waves  lapping,  strong  winds,  kids  jumping  on  shoulders,  it  was  hard  to  judge.
 The  inner  folds  of  this  anemone  are  bright  red  in  colour.
 You  could  simply  sit  for  hours  and  watch  this  beautifull  creation  of  nature.

 Sean,  I  am  a  big  zero  in  marine  fish  keeping.  Very Happy  
 The  corals  and  anemones  at  Narara,  have  not  washed  up  from  somewhere,  they  grow  at  that  place.
 At  high  tide  the  water  is  3  meters  and  1  ft  at  low  tide.
 As  per  the  forest  guide,this  carpet  anemone  has  a  stem  of  2  ft  below  surface.
 In  my  two  visits  the  anemones  had  been  found  at  same  place.

 Look  at  the  bright  colous  of  this  sponge.
 Had  I  not  seen  this  with  my  eyes,  I  would  have  said  that  the  colours  are  artificial.
