Clownfish

Clownfish are some of the Most Popular Saltwater Aquarium Fish

Clownfish are a striking addition to any reef aquarium. They quickly catch the eye and many marine enthusiasts entering the hobby because of an attraction to these colorful beauties. You will often see clownfish nestled in an anemone. While other fish avoid its stinging tentacles, it will cause you to wonder what relation does a clownfish and a sea anemone have. In the wild, Clown fish live in symbiotic relationships with certain anemones. It means they live together and both the Clown fish and the anemone benefiting from each others company. In captivity anemones are not necessary to keep a clown fish. Clownfish will readily adapt without them and frequently find a substitute host in a coral, rock structure, or other invertebrate. If you decide to keep an anemone you should make sure its special needs are met. Otherwise they live perfectly well in a saltwater aquarium making their home wherever they feel most comfortable.
