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.
