The sea anemone in which this anemone fish lives is white and very beautiful, but it is not the original color. They originally have a color such as brown. The cause of the color is that algae called zooxanthellae live in the body. However, when the seawater temperature exceeds 30 ° C, the zooxanthellae escape from the body of the sea anemone and fade to white. So, they were weaken. Ironically, this beautiful sight is one of the effects of global warming.

I am photographer live in Japan.
