The Ocellaris Clownfish

The Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a small marine fish, recognizable by its characteristic color pattern. It is endemic to the shallow reefs of the East Indian and Western Pacific Oceans. Clownfish live in symbiosis with anemones, whose arms can be deadly to other fish. The reproductive cycle of the clownfish is linked to the moon’s phases and can see the clownfish reproduce several times a year. The species feeds mainly on algaes and plankton as well as food particles left behind by its anemone host. It is a very popular saltwater aquarium fish.
