Clownfish

Clownfish

The Clownfish is surely everybody’s favourite fish?

It may also be one of the cleverest. It is one of just a few fish that can make itself immune to a sea anemone’s sting.

Unlike other fish, the Clownfish is able to swim freely between the poisonous tentacles of an anemone without being stung. This gives them protection and is a very good reason to take up residence! In fact, most Clownfish spend their lives living in small groups within easy reach of ‘home’.

Things to Do

  • Spot the Clownfish hiding in the Coral reefs
  • Find out why Clownfish eat marine flake foods, small shrimp
  • See the the larger Maroon Clownfish in the same display. (They look a bit more thuggish and have a dusty red colouration)
  • Watch how fast the Clownfish dash around their kingdom
