Spinecheek Anemone Fish

Spinecheek Anemone

Photo of the Day, the beautiful spinecheek anemone fish.  These anemone fish are one of the most photographic fish in the sea.  The rich red colour of the male of the species is almost neon, whereas the female is typically a very dark red.  In Indonesia, these anemone fish are often found in bubble tip anemones.  Bubble tip anemones are the perfect host as they often have a variety of colours, such as the purple, green, and white found in this photo.
