Skunks ascending

Most of the time, the skunk clownfish remain in the tentacles of the Sebae anemone.  Some have migrated to some nearby Duncans and are seen swimming through the green hammers, but the Sebae is their home. When I feed, the harem tends to swim out into the open to get their share.  But today I saw something different: They were swimming upwards into the open water column in a group, which was rather appealing to observe. I tried to get a few pictures.  These will will have to suffice.

And here is more what I'm used to seeing.

It could be they are joining the Anthias for a little fun. Or maybe the largest Skunks are chasing a little one.  Either way, it was different and I liked it. :)
