In Clever Clownfish, a lonely little fish leaves his anemone to travel across the reef in search of a friend. After seeing many other beautiful fish, he finally finds a female of his own kind. Clownfish live on coral reefs. They shelter in sea anemones and their skin is covered with mucus that protects them from the venom in the anemones' tentacles. They feed on plankton, algae and small invertebrates.
