The Clownfish in the Aquarium

It is hard to photograph fish, even when they’re swimming around in their tanks! Most tanks are too dark, and it’s hard to even get a focus lock on them, much less take the photo with the proper exposure.

Fortunately these guys were polite enough to be in one of the better lit tanks, drifting nicely in and out of the nooks and crannies of their environment.

Fun fact: all clownfish are born male. When the current female dies, the dominant male will change sex and assume her place.
