This is a Two-bar Anemonefish, also known as the Two-band Anemonefish, and the Red Sea Clownfish -- take your pick. The scientific name is Amphiprion bicinctus. They grow to a length of 3 to 4 inches, and they live in anemones (in case you hadn't figured that out from the name!). I like their iridescent white bands.I took this photo several years ago in the Red Sea, off the coast of the Sinai peninsula, near Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.Happy Wordless Wednesday.Bobbie

Is this Nemo? I guess you'll be getting a lot of that today. Pretty color. Happy WW
Yellow is my favorite color! Are these the same as in Finding Nemo?
I love Nemo!! I have an aquarium shot today also, Stop by. http://camerawords.blogspot.com
He, or she, looks like Nemo. Wait 'til my daughter sees it.
My three year loves all clown fish, it doesn't matter what they look like he always yells NEMO!
This fish looks larger than 3 or 4 inches. Beautiful picture.
Lovely undersea portrait. Looks like he's posing for you!
The colors on that fish are really pretty.
I love how whenever you look at them it looks like they all have their own little personalties.
The colors are so perfect! Who's Nemo? LOL!
What a beautiful fish... so colorful!Happy WW... find me here:http://justme1947.blogspot.com/
Wonderful photo... I love how amazingly creative Mother Nature has been and how well she uses color and contrast.
I like that fish. We have two clownfish (Nemo type - excuse my lack of scientific language har har) and day before yesterday we got a Chevron Tang (I think that is what its called). Truth is I just stare at the tank, Fishboy fills it and maintains it.Anyway, the very thing I love about the clownfish is the way they get into the anemones. I can watch for hours.I wonder if we can add one of these?
Great colors in this one. I so want to shoot underwater.
Wow - that's one cool fish!! It's wearing its band like cool badge :D
Such a bright, beautiful color - you do good work!
Thanks to all of you for visiting. We're always delighted to read all the comments from our Wordless Wednesday friends.For those who mentioned "Nemo," technically the fish in my picture is not a Nemo. I believe that Nemo is a different species of clownfish -- Amphiprion ocellatus. Same genus, different species -- so, you could say they were cousins.To those of you who commented that the fish looked like he posed -- I admit, cheated a little. I cropped this from a larger photo. This fish happened to be in the center of that photo, so it was easy to crop and enlarge a bit, so you could see the details.Bobbie
Sort of looks like a Garibaldi with war paint!
I am a little behind in my Wordless Wednesdays but this is a cute little fish! Thanks for sharing!
We welcome your comments and invite your questions. Dialogue is a good thing!Bobbie & Jerry
