Can you see the spine on its right cheek?

This beautiful clownfish is a resident on the reef of Siladen. It lives in a Magnificent red Anemone and it has a great drop off view.

The male (picture above) is much smaller in size compared to the female, it can be easily half of her size and normally he is less aggressive while in the other hand the female does not hesitate to come biting and swimming right  into the diver's face.

Imaging any clown fish a meter big. Wow, forget about diving in the tropics;-)
