I really love clownfish, especcially when they are in a nice-coloured anemone. Did you know that clownfish co-exist with the anomone? Other predators get stung by the anemone, except for the clownfish, they in turn, keep the anemone clean!

Did you know that Mandarin fish only reproduce around sundown? They swim up in a matter of 2 seconds and release their eggs and sperm.

The beautiful exposed purple underside of the anemone creates an unusual background for a clownfish photo.
