Maldives – Clownfish Circus

Clownfish (or Nemo’s for most people) are a very popular fish that can be found in colder waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, including the Great Barrier Reef and the Red Sea. Clownfish from different areas all have different characteristics.

They reside in anemones and have a symbiotic relationship to them; they protect and clean the anemones from parasites and algaes, in return the anemone provides shelter from predators and strong currents.

Did you know that clownfish are able to change from male to female gender? It’s a good thing Disney didn’t put this in the movies, otherwise it would’ve had a very different ending… 😉

Clownfish are very nice photo subjects, they are funny to see and can be extremely slow or extremely agile. The quicker ones can be difficult to photograph. The more reason to be happy with these pictures. Enjoy them, and feel free to leave a comment.
