Pink Skunk Clownfish or Pink Anemonefish
$29.99 – $34.99
The Pink Skunk Clownfish or Pink Anemonefish (Amphiprion Perideraion), is a species of anemonefish from the skunk complex that is widespread from northern Australia through the Malay Archipelago and Melanesia. Like all anemonefishes it forms a symbiotic mutualism with sea anemones and is unaffected by the stinging tentacles of the host anemone. It is a sequential hermaphrodite with a strict sized based dominance hierarchy: the female is largest, the breeding male is second largest, and the male non-breeders get progressively smaller as the hierarchy descends. They exhibit protandry, meaning the breeding male will change to female if the sole breeding female dies, with the largest non-breeder becomes the breeding male.
The body of the Pink Skunk Clownfish or Pink Anemonefish is pink to peach. It has the white stripe along the dorsal ridge that is common to all members of the skunk complex and a white head bar running vertically just behind the eye. While the largest species of anemonefish can reach a length of 7.1″ inches, Pink Skunk Clownfish or Pink Anemonefish is one of the smallest species with females growing to a length of 3.9″ inches.
