Curious about Clownfish?

Clownfish are some of the most common fish among saltwater tank owners. But what do you know about them besides their most famous appearance in Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo?


Here are some fun facts about Clownfish:


-All Clownfish are born male. Each clownfish has the ability to change into a female, so when the dominant female in a school dies, the dominant male will change, but this change is irreversible. 


-They have a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones. The bodies of clownfish have a layer that is immune to the toxins anemones use to capture prey and the anemone provides safety for the clownfish from predators.


-They are omnivores and can eat both plants and animals.


-Clownfish can live up to 10 years in the wild but on average up around 6 to 8 years.
