Although false clown anemonefish, Amphiprion ocellaris, are sedentary following settlement, they are not especially discriminating during settlement, and are commonly found occupying anemones at which no apparent nest site exists. In this study I report on mobility of Stichodactyla gigantea sea anemones, including anemones with resident false clowns. I argue that… CONTINUE READING
