Nine anemonefish species were reared in the laboratory, and individuals were released in the field (Lizard Island, Australia and Madang, Papua New Guinea) at different distances and orientations away from natural (anemone species the fishes are found with in nature) and unnatural species of host anemones. Experiments were conducted to examine factors that could affect the settlement behaviors of the fishes: current velocity, distance and orientation of the fishes to the anemones, chemical vs… Expand
Influence of prior residents on settlement preferences in the anemonefish, Premnas biaculeatus
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the ability of resident fish to evict incoming larvae combined with the selective pressure on larvae to locate an ideal habitat has resulted in the larval ability to accurately identify habitat where settlement and future breeding opportunities are most likely achieved. Expand
Host recognition and possible imprinting in the anemonefish Amphiprion melanopus (Pisces: Pomacentridae)
TLDR
It is suggested that juvenile A. melanopus possess an innate preference for E. quadricolor, a preference that is enhanced by imprinting, and that anemonefish host-imprinting may be rather restricted. Expand
Host choice and fitness of anemonefish Amphiprion ocellaris (Perciformes: Pomacentridae) living with host anemones (Anthozoa: Actiniaria) in captive conditions
TLDR
The results suggest that the welfare of A. ocellaris in captivity will be optimized by keeping them with their natural anemone host species, although more generalist Amphiprion species may survive in association with other hosts. Expand
Ontogenetic and interspecific variation in the protection of anemonefishes from sea anemones
TLDR
The anemonefishes developed some form of protection during metamorphosis from a pelagic larva to a benthic juvenile, but there was no correlation between the tentacle adhesive force of an anem one species and the number of anemOnefish species that it stung. Expand
Patterns of coexistence of six anemonefish species around subtropical Okinawa-jima Island, Japan
TLDR
The mechanisms of coexistence of anemonefish in subtropical regions include not only niche differentiation and cohabitation but also the lottery hypothesis, which has not been reported in tropical regions. Expand
Mortality is associated with social rank in the clown anemonefish (Amphiprion percula)
TLDR
Patterns of mortality will not be driven by predation in A. percula, because these fish are well protected from predators by their close association with sea anemones, and competition for rank will be intense whenever some individuals obtain a greater share of reproduction than others do. Expand
Experimental evaluation of the roles of habitat selection and interspecific competition in determining patterns of host use by two anemonefishes
TLDR
It is suggested that adult distributions are explained by a combination of juvenile habitat preferences, adult-juvenile interactions and constraints imposed by the contrasting social systems of the 2 species. Expand
Ontogenetic changes in responses to settlement cues by Anemonefish
TLDR
The results indicate that reef fish larvae are capable of utilizing olfactory cues early in the larval stage and may be predisposed to disperse away from reefs, with innate Olfactory preferences drawing newly hatched larvae into the pelagic environment. Expand
Influence of host anemone (Stichodactyla haddoni, saville-kent, 1893) locomotion on its resident anemonefish reproduction.
TLDR
It is concluded that the sedentary habitat would enhance the reproduction value of the harbored fish and providing with a substrate, supplying regular feed and good light intensity could prevent anemone migration and its implications on the reproductive success of the anem onefish. Expand
Habitat specialisation and the distribution and abundance of coral-dwelling gobies
TLDR
The abundance of habitat specialised fishes can be closely correlated with the spatlal and temporal availab~lity of suitable habitats among and w ~ t h i n reefs. Expand

Influence of conspecifics on choice of settlement sites by larvae of two pomacentrid fishes (Dascyllus aruanus and D. reticulatus) on coral reefs
TLDR
Results of field experiments investigating interactions between recruits and resident Dascyllus aruanus and D. reticulatus at Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia are most readily interpreted in terms of enhanced settlement of larvae on coral heads where conspecific fish predominate. Expand
The influence of adults of some coral reef fishes on larval recruitment
TLDR
Two types of interactions between resident fishes and recruits are found and the general significance of these interactions for the structure of reef fish assemblages will depend on the level of larval supply, and the number and abundance of species that show this kind of behavior. Expand
Amphiprion leucokranos, a New Species of Pomacentrid Fish, with Notes on Other Anemonefishes of New Guinea
A new species of anemonefish, Amphiprion letlcokranos, is described from Madang, New Guinea and Fergusson Island, D'Entrecasteaux Group. The species is closely related to A. sandaracinos Allen, butExpand
OBSERVATIONS ON THE SYMBIOSIS OF THE SEA ANEMONE STOICHACTIS AND THE POMACENTRID FISH, AMPHIPRION PERCULA
TLDR
Evidence is presented that an active principle is present in the mucus secreted on the outer surface of the integument of Amphiprion which raises the threshold of mechanically-induced discharge of the host's nematocysts. Expand
The Consequences of Short‐Distance Larval Dispersal in a Sessile Marine Invertebrate
TLDR
A qualitative model of larval dispersal was developed and the results agree with the model, indicating that larval recruitment of D. molle in the Lizard Island lagoon is a highly predictable process. Expand
Field evidence that settling coral reef fish larvae detect resident fishes using dissolved chemical cues
TLDR
It is suggested that some coral reef fish larvae use dissolved chemical cues to choose or to avoid settlement sites, as well as a number of other species, due either to selective settlement or to differential persistence. Expand
Planktonic larval duration of one hundred species of Pacific and Atlantic damselfishes (Pomacentridae)
TLDR
The low variance in planktonic larval duration within species indicates that most damselfish are unable to delay metamorphosis following competency, which limits the potential for dispersal, especially when dispersal time between suitable habitats is greater than about 30 d. Expand
Do anemonefishes use molecular mimicry to avoid being stung by host anemones
TLDR
Testing whether the anemonefish Amphiprion clarkii (Bennett) has a mucous coat that resembles the external mucus of anemones showed that an innately protected A. clarksii does not produce a mucus coat that is biochemically similar to that of anEMones, but that the same fish does acquire anem one substances in its mucus Coat when it associates with anem ones in aquaria.
