The Confusing Clownfish

There was a popular animated movie involving a clownfish a spell back, but movies are not a good source of accurate information about nature. Even so, clownfish are kind of cute. We see the typical image of orange and white, but they are found in a variety of colors. The most baffling thing about them is their companionship with sea anemones.

Clownfish are problematic to evolutionists in a number of ways. Not only the way they have a mutually beneficial relationship with anemones, but numerous traits defy Darwinism.

How can the clownfish get so cozy in the tentacles of the sea anemones? Those things sting their prey, after all, and are related to jellyfish. You might be unpleasantly stung your ownself. Scientists think that the slime coat (mucus) on this fish makes it chemically invisible to the anemone, but there may be other factors involved as well. (Fish need their slime coats, but this dude's is special, I reckon.) They make their homes around anemones. Yes, you can keep both in home aquariums — if you know what you're doing.

To preserve the species, clownfish have the organs of both males and females. The womenfolk are in charge, so he can become she and preserve the species. No gender dysphoria, they just do what the Master Engineer equipped them to do.

There are many fascinating facts about clownfish that show the providential design of our Creator. Also, purveyors of fish-to-fool evolution cannot explain the symbiotic relationship with anemones, nor can the come up with anything plausible about all those other design features. Best they can do is state, "It evolved" and expect you to accept the authority of scientists.
The defining characteristic of the clownfish is the ability to safely nestle into the tentacles of the anemone. Anemones are equipped with stinging structures called nematocysts. Anemones use these nematocysts to capture prey. It has been postulated that anemones use both mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors to capture prey and that they are capable of deciding when to fire the nematocysts, based on feedback from the chemoreceptors. Yet clownfish are not stung, despite freely swimming in and out of the deadly tentacles. Numerous reasons have been proposed for this immunity.
Don't pay the big words no nevermind, the article is still very interesting. To read the entire thing, click on "Designing Nemo".
