Portrait Picture of a Nemo
The ocellaris clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris), also known as the false percula clownfish or common clownfish known to grow about 110 mm long.
A. ocellaris are reliant on sea anemone for shelter (they have a symbiotic relationship with the sea anemone). Sea anemone are protection for the fish and their nests.
This is because when A. ocellaris are in the open waters, they have a higher risk of predation. It is postulated that the fanning behavior of the fish and removal of parasites promotes the health of sea anemones.
In addition, the anemone provides protection for the fish with its tentacles, however, the fish’s mucus protection prevents it from being stung by the tentacles.
