The creator!

     Hi!  My name is Betsy Berends and I am originally from Medford, WI (the home of Tombstone Pizza!).  Currently, I am a student at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse.  I am working towards a biomedical major with hopes of becoming an optometrist one day (hence the fun fact about retinal degeneration among some Amphiprion ocellaris fish!)  When I'm not in class or studying, I enjoy swimming, biking, shopping, watching movies and spending time with my family and friends.  Some of my favorite movies include "Cool Runnings", "The Guardian" and "Finding Nemo," which was my inspiration for picking the clownfish to study.  This web page was created for my Organismal Biology 203 class during the spring 2007 semester.

I hoped you have enjoyed learning about the clownfish!  It is an interesting fish that just likes to "clown around" among the anemones!  Since you have visited this site, you are now set to impress your friends with interesting facts about the clownfish, which may come in handy the next time you are watching "Finding Nemo" or walking past an aquarium!  All questions or comments may be sent to me at berends.bets@students.uwlax.edu.
