Hi fellow snorkelers, Here’s just a quick blab to show you guys some little friends of mine out on a bommie on the inside of the northern mooring at 2nd reef. Just off Sandy Seconds (as we like to call it). See if you can find these guys. I’ve attached a video to make it easy for you. These guys are commonly known as Red & Black Anemone Fish(Amphiprion melanopus). No they’re not the same as Nemo (clown Anemone Fish, Amphiprion percula) but they are very closely related. Actually there are a number of different species of Anemone Fish that can be found on the Great Barrier Reef.
