<p>Predation on anemonefishes is greatly reduced due to the relationship with the host anemone, whose sting deters potential predators. The eggs are more susceptible to predation, mainly by other damselfishes (<span class="taxon">Pomacentridae</span>) not including other anemonefishes, and wrasses (<span class="taxon">Labridae</span>) (Arvedlund et al. 2000). Egg predation susceptibility increases at night as the male is not guarding them and they may fall victim to brittle stars (<span class="taxon">Ophiotrichidae</span>) (Arvedlund et al. 2000).<span> (Arvedlund, Bundgaard, and Nielsen, 2000)</span></p>
