Anemones!
 

Diet- They eat fish, mussels, zooplankton, small crustaceans and tiny marine larvae and worms. They catch food using the tentacles, which have poisonous stingers (called nematocysts).

Anatomy: Sea Anemones come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. They have a column like body with a single body opening, the mouth, which is surrounded by tentacles. The tentacles protect the anemone and catch its food. Sea Anemones are usually about 1 to 4 inches across, but a few grow to be 6 feet across.

Interesting Fact-  These invertebrates have no skeleton at all.
