Caption: Common clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) in their host anemone. These fish are immune to the stinging tentacles of the anemone, and use it for protection and as a nesting site. They live in groups and are territorial, attacking any other animal approaching, such as the black damselfish here. Filmed off Dimakya Island, Coron, The Philippines.
