It would be parasitism. Think of what a PARASITE does- it feeds at someone else's expense. It isn't a competition because they aren't fighting for the same food or territory. It isn't commensalism because anemone's eat fish, and commensalism is when creatures basically live together in harmony. It definitely isn't mutualism, as only one creature benefits form their interactions
The answer is mutualism. The question says that the clown fish and sea anemone BOTH benefit from being together. HelloMoe correctly described each type of symbiosis. But it's not a parasitism.
Lol! I totally misread the question!

I agree with InYourHead, as if they were friends and got along together, the symbiosis would be described as mutualism, like mutual friends.
