Clownfish from "Finding Nemo"

ClownfishThe Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a populair aquarium fish and it also was the main character in the movie "Finding nemo". It lives in coral reefs around the world, seeking the protection of a sea anemone Heteractis magnifica. Predators of the Clownfish include brittle stars, wrasses, and other damselfish. The clownfish seeks protection from these predators by sticking close to the sea anemone, which in return gets its food with its poisenous tentacles from the clownfish drawing its predators. The sea anemone does not attack the clownfish, because of the mucus secreted by the clownfish...
