Caption: Spine-cheeked anemone fish. This fish (Premnas biaculeatus) is also known as the maroon anemone fish, or clownfish. It lives with a sea anemone (not seen) in a symbiotic relationship. It cleans the anemone of parasites and in return finds protection amongst its stinging tentacles. A layer of mucus on its skin protects it from the stings. Photographed off Madang, Papua New Guinea.
