Clownfish - kind of

I have seen clownfish in anemones in many places.  In Raja Ampat, however, there were so many variations of clownfish and anemones, I was surprised - I certainly haven't seen such a wide variety anywhere else.  Basically there were all kinds of sizes and shapes of anemones and each one had its own kind of clownfish, which varied in color and size to match the anemone.  Our guide said that there are "false clownfish" - supposedly there are also 30 species of clownfish.  Hopefully I have many good photos of clownfish - I haven't been through all my photos yet.  Here are a few variations of anemone and clownfish.
