Clownfish’s incredible show of strength

In an incredible feat of strength and problem solving, saddleback clownfish (Amphiprion polymnus)
have been filmed working together to move objects across the sea floor for the very first time.
This remarkable behaviour was captured on camera by the Blue Planet II crew and the footage is being utilised in a scientific study.
“What was really cool about this sequence is that clownfish are such a well known animal that I hope the behaviour
comes as a complete surprise” says cameraman Roger Munns.
“It really was amazing to see such a small fish move such a big object relative to its size,” he adds.

Clownfish or Anemonefish

Clownfish and anemone

The symbiotic relationship between an anemone (Heteractis magnifica) and a clownfish (Amphiron ocellaris)
is a classic example of two organisms benefiting the other;
The anemone provides the clownfish with protection and shelter, while the clownfish provides the anemone nutrients
in the form of waste while also scaring off potential predator fish.
