Clown anemonefish are members of the damselfish family, though they occupy their own subfamily, Amphiprioniinae. Scientists have catalogued six different major groups of clownfish: Percula (or orange clownfish, which features an orange body and large white blotches edged in black), Tomato (orange-red in color with a vertical white bar just behind the eyes), Skunk (pink to orange in color with a white stripe down their back), Clark (mostly black with white stripes and yellow fins and face), Saddleback (mostly black with white bars), and Maroon (deep red-orange with white bars that disappear in older fish).
Two clown anemonefish were featured in the popular Pixar animated film Finding Nemo – both the titular Nemo, and his father Marlin. The movie involves Nemo being captured by humans, while his father Marlin attempts to find him, encountering and befriending a forgetful blue tang named Dory along the way. A sequel, Finding Dory, follows Marlin, Nemo and Dory as they attempt to locate Dory’s long lost parents.
