What are migration patterns of a clown fish?

Clownfish (genus Amphiprion) do not migrate very far from the place were they are born. Clownfish are natural found in shallow water in the Pacific and Indian oceans where they live in a symbiotic relationship with anemones. Eggs are laid at the base of an anemone, which offers them protection and they are looked after by the male, who fans them to create water currents which keep the eggs oxygenated. When the fish hatch they will swim away in search of their own anemone, where they will live.

Since Amphiprion fish usually only live in association with a few species of anemones, it is thought that they recognise a potential host by chemical signals in the water.

What do clownfish eat?

A clownfish will feed on the leftovers of a fish on the anemone in which it lives; the anemone catches the fish and the clownfish eat the leftovers. Clownfish are immune to the anemones' predatory ways because of a mucus that covers their bodies and protects them from the anemones' stingers.

Plant-based foods on which clownfish feed may include copepods, isopods and zooplankton. The clownfish may also eat molluscs, planktonic crustaceans and algae that inhabit the reef, or eat away at debris, nibbling off the dead tentacles of its host anemone. They are essentially omnivorous and will eat almostly anything edible.
