The sebae anemone (Heteractis crispa) is a species of sea anemone from the northern Indian Ocean, including India, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives. Some species of anemonefishes associate with it, including the Cinnamon (Amphiprion melanopus), Oman (A. omanensis), Orange skunk (A. sandaracinos), Orange (A. percula), and several more. In contrast, the Sebae clownfish (A. sebae), with which it shares part of the common name, normally associates with the saddle anemone (Stichodactyla haddoni).
