Suicidal Green Chromis?!

I was watching my green chromis today and it did something extremely weird. It was watching my BTA for like 30 secs. before it... DIVED into the tentacles to nip at something. The tentacles retracted and the chromis swam away. What is it doing?! Comitting suicide? lol Or is it... trying to host lol!

Checking out an anemone lol. It might as well get eaten XD Im glad it's not showing any sign of being stung. How is this possible tho? Why is it not stung?

The same way a clownfish does I would guess. A few tentitive dives for the anemone to get used to it doesn't sting. There are other damsels that will do this as well. The domino comes to mind.
