Finding Nemo – The movie brought the not-so-popular species of the clownfish into a bright perspective. These tropical fish belong to the sub-family Amphiprioninae. They live in corals and inside anemones most specifically in the Great Barrier Reef. Here are some interesting facts about clown fish:


  • These fish live in small groups inside anemones with which they form a symbiotic relationship where the fish eat the leftovers of anemones and anemones have their decaying tentacles eaten (therefore increasing their chance of survival)


  • These fish lay a thousand eggs at a time and all of these can survive. These eggs are laid only in a full moon and they hatch after dusk. The eggs are guarded by the male all the time.
