A changeable fish – the clownfish

Blog Filitheyo – 07.01.2019

There are plenty of fish around the Maldives, but almost no one is as famous as the clownfish. Despite its popularity divers tend to know very little about the small reef inhabitant. They live together in groups up to 15 fish per anemone and just one of them is the chef: and that’s the female one! All the other males are happy do the housekeeping (e.g. cleaning the anemone and so on). As soon as the female leaves the group, the strongest male clownfish is turning female and enjoys life as the new king/ queen of the anemone. This and so much more is to explore, you just have to look close enough 😉
