Watch the hustle and bustle of a coral reef community.

Try to keep up with a bevy of busy tropical fishes as they traverse the corals in our special exhibition, ¡Viva Baja! Life on the Edge.

This colorful neighborhood is home to many species of tropical fish, including the Cortez wrasse, scrawled filefish and Cortez angelfish. In the wild, coral reefs are among the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth. Healthy reefs protect nearby shorelines and wetlands, and are home to thousands of species of fishes and corals.

Home, Stinging Home

The clownfish lives amid the stinging tentacles of a sea anemone. Most fishes are paralyzed by the sting of an anemone, but this colorful swimmer develops a layer of mucus that protects it.
