## Abstract

## Usage notes

Table S2. Flow conditions and the measured phase difference in the field experiments on individuals of *A. diaphana *(A) and colonies of *D. favus* (B). *u*^{c} is the horizontal current velocity, *A* is the average amplitude of the horizontal wave-induced velocity *u*^{w}*,* SD is its standard deviation, *f* is wave frequency calculated as the inverse of the period, and Δ*φ* is the phase difference between the water and tentacle velocities.

Table S3. Conditions of the *D. favus* laboratory experiments. *D*_{T} and *L*_{T} are the tentacle's diameter and length, *u*^{c} the horizontal current velocity, *A* the amplitude of the wave-induced horizontal velocity *u*^{w}, *f* the wave frequency calculated as the inverse of the period *f=1/T*, and Δ*φ* the phase difference calculated as the difference between the phase in the sine-fitted horizontal water and the tentacle velocities. The Reynolds number, *Re=**U*_{m}*D*_{T}*/ν*, and the Keulegan–Carpenter number, *KC=**U*_{m}*T/**D*_{T} where calculated using the maximal velocity of the horizontal phase-averaged period, *U*_{m}*=*max*(**u**)*, and the kinematic viscosity of sea-water *ν*.

Table S4. Flow conditions during the *G. fascicularis* laboratory experiments. *u*^{c} is the current velocity, *A* is the wave amplitude of the wave-induced horizontal velocity *u*^{w}, *f* is the wave frequency calculated as the inverse of the period *f=1/T*, and Δ*φ* is the phase difference between the water and tentacle velocities.
