Anemone fish

I have become very interested in the relationship between a clownfish and an anemone.
I have a question regarding other similar fish in saltwater.

Are there any other fish that are similar in anyway?
I ask because I saw a picture in a National Geographic Magazine with another fish in an anemone (not being eaten).

There are many many different species of clownfish. Like the Pink skunk clownfish which looks very different from a typical clown. I know of a crab that lives with anemones but i have not heard of any other fish that have the ability. What did the fish look like?

Many of the damsel fish live in anemones. There are many carrivbean and atlantic anemones, none are clownfish hosts (since clownfish are not found in the atlantic or carribean), but there are some gobies that have symbiotic relationships with these anemones.

I found the fish that I saw in the pic. It is a Domino Damselfish.

It will enter into a relationship with Stichodactyla species (Carpet Anemone) if one is available.

Could a Clownfish and a Domino Damselfish inhabit the same tank?

I have also heard some crazy things about Carpet Anemones.
(Mainly that they will eat any fish in the tank).
