The orange you can see on the rock at the front are the eggs from these Pink Anemone fish (Amphiprion perideraion) .
Like all anemonefishes it forms a symbiotic relationship with sea anemone it lives in and is unaffected by the stinging tentacles of it. The female is largest, the breeding male is second largest, and the male non-breeders get progressively smaller as the hierarchy descends. The breeding male will change to female if the sole breeding female dies, with the largest non-breeder becomes the breeding male.
This picture taken on the Great Barrier Reef in Cairns, Australia.

I used a Nikon D300 in an Aquatica housing with two Sea & Sea YS110 strobes. Lens used was a Nikon 60mm.

Camera set to manual mode with these setting:

ISO - 100
Aperture - f-11
Shutter speed - 1-80
