what is mutaualism? how has it affected the existence of clown fish and sea anemone?

I think mutualism is where two species live in an ecosystem where they interact with each other and one gains something from the other like a bug cleaning a animal and in return the bug is gaining food.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key word "mutualism" to get these possible sources:

In the future, you can get the information more quickly by doing your own searches.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.

    Mutualism is a relationship between two animals were nither is harmed and they both benifit, for example a cirten type of bird will clean all the extra meat out of a crocidales moth and in exchange the bird gets a meal.
