Amphiprion clarkii, or Clark's Anemonefish.
This is a digital painting I created in vibrant colours to represent the many types of Damselfish that inhabit the waters of the world, but I used a Clark's Anemonefish as a base model. The markings and colours can vary wildly from region to region, so I used the bright greens, yellows, deep blues and orange that are common to many of this type of reef inhabitant.
Found in pairs or family groups in most reef habitats from lagoons to outer reef slopes with an anemone.
Colours vary from place to place.
They feed on zooplankton and algae.
Length - 14cm
Depth - 1-60m
This is the only Anemonefish known to live with all host anemones.
Anemonefish are specialised damselfish and live a symbiotic relationship with various anemones. Some anemonefish will only be found with one type of anemone, but others can live with many types.
They are rarely found very far away from an anemone.
