False Clown Anemone Fish  Amphiprion ocellaris

Nemo, or at least his  close cousin the false clown anemone fish, these are very similar to the true Nemo which is found on the Great Barrier Reef.  This fish was found near Samaesan in Gulf of Thailand in about 2m of water - they are very uncommon around this area, only the second I have seen on surrounding divesites.   They are found throughout the coral triangle as far east as PNG and the Northern coast of Australia.

This is a "must see enlarged" ! Very cozy, little Nemo , in his "den". Love the colors and how he looks in there. Very cute and appealing photo.
