Attention, Finding Nemo fans: do you know that we frequently have baby clownfish on exhibit? Our aquarists raise them behind the scenes, patiently waiting for eggs to develop. They're in our Splash Zone exhibit—make sure to stop by on your next visit and see if you can "find" these colorful fish yourself!
Clownfish, also called anemonefish, live nestled among the tentacles of stinging anemones. Before these fish can call an anemone home, they have to get comfortable. The fish gently touch the anemone's tentacles over a period of several hours or days, until they form a layer of mucus that's resistant to the stings.
