Clownfish Species

Clownfish are a beloved fish for many people, especially since they can be seen in popular movies like Finding Nemo. They’re native to Indian and Pacific waters and usually inhabit the Great Barrier Reef or the Red Sea with their friends -the surgeonfish and butterflyfish- but you’ll also find them sharing an aquarium tank near your home!

Clownfish are known for their distinctive orange flanks and white stripes. They’re tiny fish, sharing the same size as marginally rare seahorses. The incredible sight of seeing a clownfish weaving in and out with its host anemone is truly one among many beautiful sights that can be seen within these tanks. Unfortunately, these anemones are difficult enough to care for as they require very high levels of aquarium lighting and supplemental feeding.
