The Museum

The Clownfish can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Clown fish spend their lives hiding among the feelers of sea anemones, a place that only they can live. Their homes may be dangerous, but they produce a special coating that protects them from the poison. In exchange for the anemone's protection, the clown fish chases off any parasitic bugs and enemies. Curiously, all clown fish are males when they're young but change into females if necessity demands."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a clown fish! Who's laughing now?"
