Proud mum, sorry, aquarist Rachel gets ready for the release

Actually, there's two of them. The aquarium at World Museum Liverpool had a couple of new arrivals this afternoon; six-month old False Clownfish or Anemonefish (the same species featured in Finding Nemo). Both were hatched in the aquarium in March this year, and today were released into the main tank. Up to this point they have spent their short lives in a behind-the-scenes nursery tank, where their parents will stay in the hope we hear the splish splosh of more tiny fins. Cute huh?
