Anemone Fish and Their Host Sea Enemones
(Field Guide to)
By: Daphne G. Fautin & Gerald R. Allen.
"Clown fish" are popular with underwater photographers because they are attractive, and sedentary. But the real fascination lies with their relationship with the poisonous anemone fish. This excellent book gives an insight into the relationship, and how the anemone fish is 'immune' to the poisonous nematocyst sting that is fatal to other fishes. It also provides an exceptional guide to species identification of the fish and their symbiotic hosts. A valuable and well produced book.
