Orangefin clownfish (Amphiprion chrysopterus) with their host anemone. Clownfish, also known as anemonefish, live amongst the tentacles of sea anemones. The tentacles are covered in stinging cells (nematocysts), which deters predators from approaching the fish. The clownfish themselves are immune to the stings. They emerge from the protection of the anemone to feed on plankton, small shrimp and worms. The orangefin clownfish inhabits coral reefs in the tropical western Pacific Ocean. It can attain a length of around 17 centimetres.
