Least Concern

Did you know?

Diet

They eat plankton floating in the water. They also eat algae from the reef surface.

Fun fact

All clownfish are born male, and then the largest in a group will turn into a female to reproduce.

Habitat

They live in coral reefs in shallow and calm lagoons in the Indo-West Pacific.

Clownfish live within the tentacles of a variety of venomous anemones - and have a productive relationship with it. Their bodies are covered with mucous which protects them from the venom and means they can hide from predators within it. In return the clownfish remove parasites from the anemone and chase away any species that may try to eat it. Some clownfish are orange and white, but others are black and white.
