Clownfish (aka anemonefish)
What Do Clownfish Eat?
In the wild, Clownfish (aka anemonefish) form symbiotic relationships with sea anemones. Depending on species, they are overall yellow, orange, or reddish with many showing white bars or patches. The largest can reach a length of nearly 7 inches.
Clownfish are omnivorous and they primarily feed on small zooplankton from the water column, such as copepods and tunicate larvae, with a portion of their diet coming from algae.
In their natural environment, they feed on undigested food from their host anemones. The fecal matter from the clownfish also provides nutrients to the sea anemone.
