Great Barrier Reef fish literally come in all the colours of the rainbow: blue, red, orange, purple and green.

Colour is used for camouflage, so they can blend into the coral backgrounds and avoid predators.


And within the living colours of the corals, there it were sitting on top of the anemones, the most famous specie in the reef (just because of the movie, though) – the clown fish. Yes, we saw all the Nemo’s cousins on their sea anemones.


While they are small in size it is pretty easy to spot them due to their tendency of living in shallower waters, making them visible even when just snorkelling.

I was amazed with all the different types of fish, but I always had a soft spot for Nemo’s cousins.
