How many types can you spot?

The fantastic diversity of Pacific Reef Fish is truly remarkable, and they come in all shapes and colours. The shallow reefs provide an important habitat, as fish and other organisms shelter, find food, reproduce and raise their young in the protection of the reefs. 

Because of the diversity of life found in the habitats created by the reefs, they are often called the "rainforests of the sea."

Facts about Clownfish

Did you know some interesting facts about Clownfish? These colourful creatures can be found in warm waters, specifically in the Red Sea and Pacific Oceans, and they typically live in sheltered reefs or lagoons. Their diet consists of small invertebrates, algae, and leftover food scraps from the anemone they live in. Interestingly, Clownfish have a symbiotic relationship with anemone. The anemone offers protection from predators and provides food scraps, while the clownfish lures other fish into the anemone using its bright colours. The anemone then kills and eats the fish with its poison, and the clownfish also fertilizes the anemone with its waste.
