Pink anemonefish sheltering. Pink anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion) sheltering in a partially bleached magnificent anemone (Heteractis magnifica). This anemone has become bleached through stress caused by changes to its environment. This causes the loss of most of the endosymbiotic zooxanthellae contained within its cells. This is not good for the anemone, since it is dependant on the assimilation products of the zooxanthellae as its major food source. Photographed off in Bunaken National Park, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
