Animal Update: Fire Anemonefish
Published February 27, 2015
A fire anemonefish has been added to our Surviving Through Adaptation exhibit!
Relatives to “Nemo,” these fish also have a protective, symbiotic relationship with anemones!
Fire anemonefish are found throughout the south Pacific Ocean. They’re omnivorous animals, which means they’ll dine on both algae and any available animal protein.
Adult anemonefish can grow to be about 5 inches in length. Females are usually larger then their male counterparts!
Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes updates!
