Captured with a simple compact camera of about 7 feet deep, of diving and snorkelling at Perhentian Island. A holiday islands with shallow water that offers excitement for an like me.
I simply like watching its beauty and its dances in the water near the living corals.

The Ocellaris Clownfish, Clownfish or False Percula Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a popular aquarium fish. It is very closely related to A. percula, the Orange Clownfish or "True Percula Clownfish", and often lives in association with the sea anemone Heteractis magnifica, using them for shelter and protection. Generally, Ocellaris clownfish are hardier, and slightly less aggressive than its Percula counterpart. Both species are found in coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific, particularly in the Fiji and Tonga regions.
This clown anemonefish can be recognised by its orange colour with three white bars and black markings on the fins. It grows to about eight centimeters (three inches) in length. One can differentiate between Percula (true) and Ocellaris (false) by their respective colors and patterns. Ocellaris are usually less vibrantly colored, and have 11 dorsal fin-spines instead of 10, as on the Percula. Also, the species have different eye arrangements: Percula have bright orange irises, making their eyes appear smaller, whereas Ocellaris have grey/orange irises which make the species eyes appear bigger.

Hello Foozi,
Having been on TN for only six months (and obviously not viewing all the photo's here), I do not think I have seen an underwater image other than from an aquarium. Well done to have brought us this from the natural environment in such clarity and beautiful shapes and colours. It is a pleasure to view.
Best wishes.

Hello Foozi,
Nice to see an underwater capture that is not in an aquarium!
Like you, I love snorkeling and watching the marine life.
This is a fine capture at this depth, the sharpness and colouring showing these clownfish nicely in their natural environment.
Well done and thanks for this delight!
Best regards,

Hello Foozi,

You're capturing well wonderful, natural scenery in the sea by a good angle and excellent tone, so it's impressive and interesting to see Coral and clownfish in the sea. You did a precious experience. And, you're catching this scene well by bright tone, clarity and sharpness.
I saw this clownfish with the stripe of yellow/white, though I watched Disney animation movie of "Fighting Nemo" before.
Wonderful photo!
