Facts About the Clown Fish

Ever since the movie, Finding Nemo, people have been going crazy for clown fish. Check out these facts on one of the ocean's coolest creatures.

What is a Clown Fish?

There are 28 species of clown fish. They are orange, yellow, maroon and many other colors. The most common clown fish - and the one that looks most like Nemo - is the percula clown fish which is bright orange with white stripes. Clown fish are between two and five inches long.

Where Do Clown Fish Live?

Clown fish live on the ocean floor. They are found in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean and Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

Who are the Friends of the Clown Fish?

Clown fish and anemones hang out all the time and help each other out. Anemones are fish-eating animals that look like underwater flowers and have hundreds of poisonous tentacles. Clown fish find most of their food by mooching off the anemone. Clown fish wait until the anemone paralyzes and eats a fish, then helps itself to the bits which the anemone doesn't eat. Clown fish avoid being harmed by the anemones by swimming a funky dance around the anemone's poisonous tentacles. Clowns allow the tentacles to graze their bodies until they build up an immunity to the poison. In exchange for getting food from the anemones, the clown fish clean the anemones by eating dead tentacles. Clowns also protect anemones from predators.

However, when you become pregnant, you know theres a CHANCE you COULD get pregnant, if you don't want to, use protection. People know the consequences with doing the "dirty", so if you think youre mature enough to do it, you can be mature enough to be a mom. And if you don't think you want to be a mom, theres adoption. Theres too many people who cant have babies for unknown reasons, I think that if you abort a baby, youre just throwing a smack in the face to those who cant have children.

Men should not choose what women do, and women should have the right to be able to control her baby. We do give the birth after all!!If someone was raped, I believe they have the right to abortion. Yes, however, I believe a father has the right to an opinion. Just because he doesn't have birth doesn't mean his opinions don't matter. Especially since its his child just as much as the mothers.
