Clownfish with one line.
|Scientific name||Amphiprion frenatus|
|English name||Tomato clownfish|
|Classification details||Perciformes Pomacentridae|
|Distribution||Warm waters of the Pacific Ocean.|
An anemone fish with a single line running behind its eye. It has a vermilion body, but mature females turn brown. Juveniles have two or three lines, which disappear as they grow.
Inhabits coral reefs and lives in symbiosis with sea anemones. It eats small crustaceans and algae. They will intimidate you if they enter their territory. It also rushes and pecks at people who approach it when shooting.
I took this picture while swimming over sea anemones in a shallow coral reef. The female intimidated me and eventually bit my glove. The smaller individuals did not come out of the sea anemone.
