Suppose you're a sessile marine creature looking to put down "roots" some place. Would you choose to attach to a living organism or to something dead or inanimate?

Depends on what type of marine environment the organism is dealing with. In eutrophic environment with high nutrients attaching to a stationary element would work because nutrients are plentiful and simple diffusion will bring nutrients. In an oligotrophic environment attaching to a mobile element such as an animal would make more sense because the larger organism will move towards food which in turn brings the attached organism food.
