False Percula Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris)
[2034]
Gallery quality underwater photographic print by Paul Waldeck, available framed or unframed in several sizes.

This anenomefish (Amphiprion ocellaris) is one of the clownfish residing in the Magnificent Sea Anenome (Heteractis magnifica). Often confused with the Percula clownfish (Amphprion percula) which has more pronounced black markings separating orange from white patches on its body.

The host anenomes are beautifully colored and grow to 2 feet in diameter. The tentacles are tipped with stinging cells (nematocysts) which are used to stun prey. These tentacles also provide safe haven for a variety of animals which live in a symbiotic relationship on the host anenome. The anenome provides protection with its tentacles and the other animals keep the anenome clean and free from parasites. Some of the animals which live with the anenome include clownfish (anenomefish), porcelein crabs, and a variety of cleaner shrimp.

Members of the Damselfish family, anenomefish exhibit much the same behavior as their cousins-attacking any fish (or human) which comes close to the anenome.

Photographed in the Solomon Islands
