Nemo's Cousin in the Solomon Islands
Clownfish - Amphiprion ocellaris
Oil on Canvas - 30" wide x 24" high
Original Oil Painting - For Sale

There are 30 species of anemonefish or clownfish. They can be yellow, orange, reddish or blackish, and many show white bars or patches. The largest can be up to 7 inches. Nemo made famous the Amphiprion ocellaris species. I photographed "Nemo's cousin" on a dive trip in the Solomon Islands in 2011. Unlike most reef fish, wild clownfish will really look at you, interact with you and generally clown around. So it's not just their coloration that has given them their clownfish common name.
