Fire anemonefish are found throughout the south Pacific Ocean. They’re omnivorous animals, which means they’ll dine on both algae and any available animal protein. 

Adult anemonefish can grow to be about 5 inches in length. Females are usually larger then their male counterparts! 

Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes updates!
