This huge family includes some of the most famous of all coral reef fish...

Family Pomacentridae, 'Damselfish'

Abudefduf sexfasciatus, 'Scisor-tail Sergeant', (Aitutaki Fiji).

These famous fish are always found near or within the tentacles of a host anemonefish.

Amphiprion melanopus 'Red and Black Anemonefish', with Entacmaea quadricolor (Rajah Ampat, Indonesia).

Amphiprion frenatus, 'Tomato Clownfish' (Miyako Island, Japan).

Amphiprion rubrocinctus, 'Australian Anemonefish' (Turquoise Bay Ningaloo). Only found off the north west and top end coasts of Australia.


Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea.
