A colony of the bamboo coral Acanella (orange colored bush) shares a large rocky outcrop with other suspension feeders including a sponge, a yellow sea lily, and a holothurian (red body with white feeding tentacles) at 1630 meters depth. Currents move faster as one moves away from the bottom and suspension feeders take advantage of variations in bottom topography find faster flows.
