Amphiprion percula, a.k.a. Clownfish. Nice dark color varieties are being line bred instead of wild caught.
Apparently, Amphiprion percula larvae are drawn to specific anemones, Heteractis magnifica and Stichodactyla gigantea, through chemical cues released from the anemones which will act as protection for the fish as the fish acts to feed and clean the anemone. Cool huh?
