One of the ocean’s biggest celebrities, clownfish are hard to not like with their distinctive bright orange and white markings. Clownfish live in warm-water coral reefs, including the Great Barrier Reef, and make their homes in sea anemones. Clownfish are immune to anemones’ lethal sting, and in exchange for safety, drive away intruders and clean the anemone, removing parasites.
